Is Football Racist? - Mon 16 Jul 9pm BBC 3

"Following a season in which football has been rocked by allegations of racism, former Premier league defender Clarke Carlisle explores how far his profession has progressed since the dark days of banana throwing on the terraces, in this one-hour current affairs documentary for BBC Three.

Nicknamed ‘Britain’s brainiest footballer’ Clarke has played at all levels, from the Premiership to the fourth division at Northampton Town, and as the chairman of the Professional Footballers Association he feels he has a good grasp of the issues confronting football today.

Setting out in the belief that racism has been largely eradicated from the game and that recent incidents are being addressed by the authorities, Clarke faces a stark realisation as he embarks on a journey which brings racism in football very close to home.

From the tribalism of clubs and fans to the comparative lack of ethnic minorities on the terraces; the lack of South Asian players and black managers in the professional game and the shockingly overt racism in Poland, one of the host countries for Euro 2012, Clarke emerges with a very different perspective on the ugly face of the beautiful game - especially after his father tells him for the first time of his disturbing and sad experiences of racism while trying to become a professional player.

Is Football Racist? hears from a range of voices from across football. Former Liverpool and England players John Barnes and Stan Collymore and Birmingham City’s manager Chris Hughton all share their thoughts and experiences, while Jewish comedian and avid Chelsea fan David Baddiel, former football hooligan Cass Pennant and the Punjabi Wolves, the UK’s largest group of ethnic minority football supporters, give the view from the terraces."
