ABSTRACT
CHANNEL 5's Being: Liverpool may have given us an insight into life at Anfield under Fenway Sports Group, but Tranmere lay claim to being the first English club with an American owner � San Francisco lawyer Bruce Osterman in 1984 � as well as pioneers of the fly-onthe-wall football documentary. In 1982, chairman Harry Gould let the BBC make a series of 40-minute programmes, but it backfired when a cameraman given access to the club's Mersey ferry cruise inadvertently filmed a married member of staff getting familiar with a young lady. When he returned from the toilet, his �24,000 camera had been thrown overboard.
