Footnotes
RT. Commentator deduced from Radio Times listing (barring last minute changes of plan)
1. Barry Davies was listed to do a regional opt-out before David Coleman was taken ill. Davies recalls that
    he was scheduled to do the North region game but Radio Times lists him on the S-East game (same game?)
2. RT says this week's S&W opt-out was presented by Jeremy Darrod who appears to be the regular host
3. Main game recorded in colour, possible colour test transmission
4. RT has Wolstenholme on main game which is listed as "First Division", Coleman on South-East game
5. RT says this week's North opt-out was presented by Stuart Hall who was probably the regular host
6. RT has Wolstenholme on main game but incorrectly lists Coleman on South-East opt-out
7. Main game was first official BBC1 match in colour
8. Part of "Match of the Day Special": 60 minutes Football followed 55 minutes of Tennis
9. RT says this week's S&W opt-out was presented by Hugh Scully
10. London RT incorrectly lists Coleman on main game and Davies in South East
11. In colour
12. RT lists Wolstenholme on main game, Davies in S/E. Main game probably postponed (Man Utd v Leeds?)
13. Part of "Match of the Day Special" with 1970 World Cup draw; no regional games listed in Radio Times
14. Radio Times lists Kenneth Wolstenholme and David Coleman along with Idwal Robling
15. RT has Coleman on main game and Wolstenholme in South East but KW did Man Utd v Palace
