MUTV celebrates 10 years

The 1998/99 season was not only a successful one for Manchester United on the field, there were also some landmark achievements for the club off the field - not least the launch of its own television channel, MUTV.

MUTV first went on air on 10 September 1998, showing exclusive behind the scenes programmes with a message of: 'Get MUTV, get closer to Manchester United.'

Former players have been a constant presence on MUTV in its first decade. Lou Macari says: "I've been with MUTV since the beginning and I've loved every minute of it.

"It gives me the chance to still be part of United. I've been lucky enough to go to the cup finals with MUTV - Moscow this year was an adventure and a trip I'll never forget.

"MUTV is a great place to work, and there are some great characters behind the scenes. I enjoy working with all the cameramen, technicians, producers and presenters. It's a real laugh but just like United's players and coaching staff, they all work extremely hard."

Lou was one of five legends lined up to take part in Wednesday's special edition of Live at the Red Cafe on MUTV (18:30 BST). Also answering questions from the studio audience were Pat Crerand, David May, Alex Stepney and Mickey Thomas.
