I bought this DVD when it was first released and found it to be an entertaining, heartwarming, and moving account of a club which is steeped in history.

I have just recently watched it again so thought I'd write a review. It is packed with action and leaves nothing uncovered, including the Howard Wilkinson managerial stints, and some fantastic rare Dixie Dean footage.

If you're an Everton fan then this is simply a must have.

Nearly twenty years after the VHS production of Everton's Official History was released, a brand spanking new DVD has been brought out in time for Christmas.

First the good bits: John Motson narrating; a wealth of footage, both vintage and contemporary, and a few gems I haven't seen before: the 1966 FA Cup Final in Technicolor, for example; and archive interviews with Harry Catterick. Historian, John Keith, and local journalist, Dave Prentice, give insightful and interesting perspectives.

Indeed, it's a wonder why these two were not asked to produce the film, for they clearly have the knowledge, talent and - above all- passion for the subject to make this a far better film. For I am sad to report that this DVD is a lackluster effort; worth watching once, but not really meriting a second viewing, or the ludicrously inflated cover price.

This really is a wasted effort. Besides the interviews with Keith and Prentice and one or two others, there is a definite sense that this is the original VHS offering (from 1988) with an extra half hour taped onto the end. The makers have not been out and about with their cameras updating old interviews and making new ones. For instance, the interview with a very youthful Dave Hickson from the VHS is included as if it were new materiel. Could not the makers have gone down to Goodison one morning (where Hickson still works) and taken twenty minutes to get some new footage and thoughts? Colin Harvey is interviewed at Bellefield in improbably skimpy shorts, presumably when he was still manager in the late 1980s. Lazy, lazy, lazy.

Even the `new' interviews are slipshod and second rate. Many seem to have been taken at a Gwladys Street Hall of Fame dinner hosted five or six years ago. Who by isn't quite clear.

This is a superb history about a club that history dvd's were made for. HAVING READ about the ALEX SANDY YOUNG story i was hoping for a little mention.Just something about Goodison Park pre 1980 that is my number 1 stadium. ITS FUNNY WHEN YOU THINK LIVERPOOL FC ARE NOT NOT REALLY THE GOOD GUYS!!..AND THE HISTORY OF THE RED HALF OF THE CITY DID NOT REALLY START UNTIL SIR BILL! (IKNOW THATS NOT TRUE BUT THIS IS FOR EVERTONIANS) maybe the lesson learned is the devil looks after his own.I CAN'T THINK of an everton hero I DIDN'T LIKE.its very moving at the end and in ALAN BALL THE PASSION OF THE GUY MOVED ME TO TEARS! I HAVE SAID IN MY REVIEWS SEVERAL TIMES AND HAVING HAD THE CHANCE TO WATCH HIM AT THE DELL.. I DON'T THINK I HAVE LOVED ANY PLAYER AS MUCH! The club and crowd is all about passion, and the highs and lows of the club, the superb film of the like of DIXIE DEAN AND INTERVIEWS WITH ALL THE GREATS FLY QUICKLY AND I WAS GOING TO WATCH A LITTLE BIT DAY BY DAY, BUT THIS DVD IS SO GOOD 2 HOURS ARE GONE AND ITS OVER. I'M just a football fan and for history lovers,and evertons early history is so interesting and the sight of liverpool 1966 with celebrations of v.e.day proportions make this great value and a must see/pick me up for old cynics and youngsters alike.

This DVD begins very dissappointingly. It should begin with Z Cars playing, instead it begins with the new adopted song from Celtic's original, It's a grand old team to play for. The old vhs version beautifully began with Z Cars, why didn't this? It just ain't Everton, it's not even sung particularly well, and it's wrong to begin this new Everton programme with this copied and phony garbage. They should also stop playing this song at Goodison also, copies are never right, just Z Cars is the one for me. There is an enormous portion not covered from Everton's great times of the 60s, they highlight that era mainly with the 1966 FA Cup win, wonderful day, but not enough. We know our most successful period was in the 1980s, which is greatly covered and rightly so, but I've always sensed something was never quite done properly with it as a whole package. It's satisfactory, but the start as I say, just ain't soul stirring enough.
