Cardiff back to square one

23 April 2017

A very interesting Sunday morning spent at the Cardiff Story Museum on the 90th anniversary of Cardiff City FC winning the FA Cup. This was the first cup final broadcast on BBC radio, club historian Richard Shepherd revealed in his talk. To help commentators describe – and listeners picture – the action, this diagram was published in the Radio Times.

What a great example of an early infographic. It was so simple to understand and really useful to both “client” and “customer”. It was also possibly the origin of the phrase “back to square one”.
