Tonight will see BBC Somerset air a radio documentary programme covering the current plight of Yeovil Town Football Club. Produced by reporter Jack Killah, the feature will cover the club's relegation from the Football League, combined with the ongoing ownership issues at Huish Park that have contributed to those problems.
Entitled "You're Killing My Club - The Yeovil Town Story", the documentary will be broadcast from tonight at some point during Charlie Taylor's show, which runs from 7.00p.m. until 10.00p.m. - at present we're not sure exactly which part of the show they'll run this feature.
The BBC's programme features a number of interviews recorded with Yeovil Town supporters during the final few weeks of the 2018-19 season, and during the aftermath of the season that saw the club return to the National League. As part of a preview to that show, BBC Somerset Breakfast Show presenter Claire Carter pointed out that the BBC had attempted to get senior personnel from the club involved with that documentary as well as onto her own programme, but had met with refusals. She explained:
"We have asked the club to speak to us on numerous occasions, and I can back that up. I know that from many journalists here, and I know that on Breakfast we've asked to speak to many people at the club. Every single time we get turned down. Chairman John Fry continues to say no, to coming onto this programme. I leave that invitation open. Whenever John Fry would like to come onto the programme and have a chat about what is going on at Yeovil Town, there is a place for him here. There is a time."
If we can get a more certain time when the show will include the documentary, we'll include it on our Twitter page and Facebook Group as well as updating this article. Otherwise, tune in from 7.00p.m. tonight.
