Did anyone else see this on BBC1 just before Christmas?

It featured in Episode 3 TV Presenter Dominic Littlewood, who is a Southend boy. The programme focuses on loneliness and at one point there is an interview with a guy called Keith who says he has started coming to watch Southend so he can feel part of something, but he can only afford to go every third home game.

Towards the end of the programme the presenter, celebrity chef James Martin, says that he's bought the guy a present. He then gives him a Southend Utd scarf, hat and wallet and inside the wallet is a Season Ticket!

Nice programme, all filmed in the town and has a real feel-good factor about it.
