Rewriting the North: John Murray

John Murray is a sports broadcaster, senior commentator and Football Correspondent for BBC Radio 5 Live. For the final episode of our inaugural Rewriting the North series, John takes us on an odyssey of the North East of England, from a remote farm straddling Hadrian's Wall, where he grew up, to three iconic football grounds that have influenced his career: St James's Park (Newcastle FC), The Stadium of Light (Sunderland FC) and Riverside Stadium (Middlesbrough FC), crossing the Tyne, Wear and Tees rivers along the way.
