Nickname(s)Making of Mike Bassett: England Manager

In the 2001 film Mike Bassett: England Manager,[119] the eponymous hero, played by Ricky Tomlinson, rises to prominence as a result of success as manager of Norwich City, having won the 'Mr Clutch Cup'. The celebratory scenes of the open-top bus ride around the city (right) were actually shot in St Albans, Hertfordshire, rather than Norwich.

In 1972 the Children's Film Foundation released a movie called The Boy Who Turned Yellow about a boy living in London who supports Norwich City. In the film, he and everyone and everything else on his tube train are turned yellow. That night he is visited by a yellow alien called Nick, short for electronic, who teaches him all about electricity. The link to the football club is used to explain why the boy already has so many yellow things in his bedroom.[120]

In a 2015 episode of the Channel 4 sitcom Peep Show, character Super Hans encourages Mark to pursue his love interest, no matter the odds, because "Norwich are never going to win the league, but they still turn up every week, don't they? The pricks."[121]
