THE CQN PODCAST: BEHIND THE SCENES WITH BT SPORT INCLUDING CHRIS SUTTON INTERVIEW

1

A Celtic State of Mind offers an insight into the culture of Celtic Football Club, the city of Glasgow, and fans of the reigning invincible Scottish champions.

Each episode includes interviews with ‘Celtic-minded’ figures from the world of sport, music, film, art, broadcasting, literature or politics.

This week, ‘A Celtic State of Mind’ went behind-the scenes at BT Sport for the Hamilton versus Celtic league encounter.

Paul John Dykes and David Faulds were able to interview Chris Sutton, Stephen Craigan and Darrell Currie in a unique fly-on-the-wall episode which provides a fascinating insight into the world of live sporting broadcasts.

And the Celtic support were in fine voice as you will hear at the end of the podcast.

Thanks to BT Sport for the opportunity to see behind the scenes as they broadcast a match. The fact that they want to engage with supporters directly has to be welcomed.

90,000 Celtic fans can’t be wrong…

The head to head, hear the first take on the CQN Podcast, probably better than the one aired on BT Sport. It couldn’t be used due to Chris Sutton taking the Lord’s name in vain!

A backdrop unique to Hamilton in Scottish football. He’d pay to watch Scotty Sinclair incidentally.

A tiny wee room and there’s about 20 people crammed in there, not that you’d believe it from looking at this.

The control room, where all the decisions are made. They get the team news very early!

Late arrivals in the pundits position, Sutton and Craigan were there at 4pm on the nose.
