A long lost copy of Liverpool legend Bob Paisley’s appearance on seminal TV show ‘This Is Your Life’ has been unearthed and uploaded to YouTube.

Paisley was surprised by the program’s presenter, Eamonn Andrews, on the Reds team bus as they made their way back from Loftus Road on November 12 1977. Paisley’s side had just been beaten 2-0 and Paisley joked: “Oh no! I thought you were QPR’s center-forward!” The program was aired on December 28.

The original recordings of the show had been destroyed but Pete Day has uploaded his own VHS tape of the show and it has already been watched thousands of times by Reds fans.

An upload like this is a rarity and Old Bob himself was always a humble gentlemen. Bob Paisley…  This Is Your Life.
