As the title of this topic suggests, I'm attempting to make a list of all the countries that have surviving professional wrestling footage from before the year 1970. As well as that, as I go along, I'm going to be listing the category/categories of footage that I'm aware has/have survived next t
  3. Ha yes THAT Jimmy Savile, here's the match I listed above - it's only short clips, it was taped for a BBC documentary in 1965 and was included on the Best Of ITV Wrestling DVD as an extra which is why I listed it with the World Of Sport stuff, I'm told none of his matches actually made it onto the main TV programme. As for your Wrestling Classics suggestion, good idea, I'll do that!

I realise this is a hefty project and that's why I've decided t
