Once in a blue moon - a chance to go behind the scenes at Maine Road.
From the collection of:
The blue half of Manchester comes under scrutiny here with a visit to the famous Maine Road football stadium, the former home of one of the city's great teams. This is Maine Road out of hours, though, and we go behind the scenes with the ground staff to look at the work that goes into keeping the show on the road. This is a fascinating glimpse of a world that the fans don't normally get to see.
