Additional Information

According to local newspaper reports following the first It's A Knockout Domestic heat held at Southport, the organisers of the programme (the BBC) were so pleased with the amenities and its location that they agreed to hold this competition at the same venue a fortnight later. This seems a little far-fetched as there is no way that the BBC production team would have left deciding a venue for the FA Cup Final special to such a late time. It is more likely that Barney Colehan and his team came to an agreement about the staging of this special at the same time that they first visited the venue regarding the It's A Knockout heat.
