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.
Bought for a friend who'd never seen the match (I was actually there!) - not perfect but the best you'll find at presentPublished 5 months ago by Mr. Paul Gage
This was bought as a stocking filler for my grandson for Christmas. He said the DVD was a bit short but he was
able to get the gist of the game.
