Product Description

Full coverage of the match that brought England its longed-for victory in the 1966 World Cup final. A crowd of 98,000 spectators - including the Queen and Prince Phillip - filled London's Wembley Stadium to watch the host nation play West Germany in the final game of the 1966 championship, while another 400 million people around the world watched the keenly-fought match on television.

From Amazon.co.uk

The 1966 World Cup Final is arguably the most revered sporting achievement in English history, certainly English football's most frequently eulogised match, but have you actually ever seen it? If not this enhanced DVD release is nothing short of essential. Featuring the original black and white BBC coverage of the match, with Kenneth Wolstenholme at the commentator's mike, this is an opportunity for even those familiar with the big moments--five goals and "they think it's all over"--to watch the action in its entirety. It's an experience rather similar to people's descriptions of meeting TV stars--everyone's shorter, taller, fatter, thinner, balder than you expect--but even simply viewed as a game of football this is something of a classic, with disputed goals, clattering tackles, last-minute equalisers and dodgy officials, putting the achievement of Moore and co into its proper context.

On the DVD: The 1966 World Cup Final comes to DVD with a sparkling slew of extras. The choicest feature is the alternative match commentary provided, live, by five of the England team themselves--Jack Charlton, Martin Peters, Geoff Hurst, George Cohen and Gordon Banks. It's a frequently hilarious, sometimes touching additional perspective, delivered in an entertainingly chaotic style by five men who may share a common bond, but clearly see the task in hand somewhat differently.

Aside from text-only profiles of the England 11 (no subs in those days), and a gallery of stills from the match and build-up, there are three additional mini-programmes. Exclusive interviews with Tina Moore (wife of late England captain Bobby Moore), and with the late commentator Kenneth Wolstenholme, tear down some of the media-generated nonsense that has grown to obscure the match and its key participants, with their personal reflections on the event and its resonance. John Motson narrates an entertaining documentary on "The Summer of 66", featuring archive and contemporary interviews with players and fans. --Alex Hankin --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

A reminder of a great day for English football. This DVD has a running time of 114 minutes whereas the match lasted for 120 minutes. It states that it is 'dead ball edited for the first 90 minutes'. It is certainly more complete than the BBC DVD which I had previously bought from Amazon. (But bearing in mind that the BBC produced a 1991 VHS with a running time of 130 minutes, containing the complete match, I am surprised that nobody has simply converted that version onto DVD.)

I'm not old enough to remember the 1966 World Cup Final but sure I've heard about it but I never saw the match full. So I got this DVD and, although it doesn't have the entire match (40 minutes or so is missing), it does show you what a great day that day was.
The entire programme is digitally remastered and it looks as if it could have been watching the programmes first ever airing, it is so clear, the picture.
The extra are good though not always the best. The audio commentary is amazing as Jack Charlton amongst others explain what was happening during the match and their experiences of it. The documentary gives some good insight in the 1966 World Cup and the interviews, with the late Kenneth Wolstenholme and Bobby Moore's wife, are interesting. Maybe a list of all the scores from the tournament would have been nice or maybe some more photos for the gallery.
But this DVD is a very special DVD, it recollects back the memories of that afternoon and is a special DVD to have in your collection

Due to the consistent failure of England teams to recapture that glory, the World Cup Final of 1966 remains the only day on which England regained the game it had given to the rest of the world. Let us not forget, though, that it was a great game of football. Geoff Hurst became the first and only player to date to score a hat-trick in a World Cup Final ( remarkable, really, from a player who many believed should have been dropped in favour of Jimmy Greaves ). Hurst's second goal may not have clearly crossed the line ( the Germans certainly didn't think it should have counted ) but that could take nothing away from an England team that kept battling and, overall, were the better team on the day. Sadly, the late Bobby Moore remains the only England captain in history to hold the premier trophy of the game his country gave to the world.

This is just amazing - first because I realised it was the first time I had seen the game since I saw it live on the telly, but also to see how terrible some of the 'greats' actually were: Charlton shooting from everywhere even when there were several of his mates unmarked in much better positions; Beckenbauer losing the ball endlessly; every player seemingly required to dribble their way up the pitch even Wilson who lost the ball most times. A totally weird and wonderful experience - every modern footballer should be compelled to watch it to compare it to the constant pressure put on the players every minute of the game these days - it used to actually be fun!

A great match but I was disappointed that this DVD does not contain the full match (about 35-40 minutes is missing). The whole match is/was available on VHS and a version with only about six minutes missing is available on DVD. Personally I would not recommend this version: I would recommend buying one of the more complete versions.

Its just great to watch this as it would have been watched that fateful day back in 1966, when people crowded around the nearest television to see all that wonderful drama unfold in glorious black & white. Imagine not knowing what the result would be. By the end of that day England were crowned champions of the world, and who was to know that we would all still be waiting for another glorious day like this. A wonderful piece of history and at least you can relive England winning the World Cup once upon a time.
