1966 is the year that resonates throughout English football. As a 40th anniversary celebration of England’s momentous World Cup victory and as a curtain-raiser to the 2006 competition in Germany in June, this documentary will bring England’s triumph to life in a way that most of us never saw it at the time (because we couldn’t on our black and white TV sets) …in glorious colour. Using the only existing colour archive footage and exclusive interviews with original team members, this film will follow England’s journey from the preparation and opening draw against Uruguay to the epic battle with West Germany at Wembley.

On July 30th – World Cup Final Day - England’s Bobby Moore and West Germany’s Uwe Seeler led their teams out onto the Wembley turf before an expectant crowd of 96,000.

What followed is part of footballing legend. In one hundred and twenty minutes of raw and emotion-fuelled play, the performance of both sides became a contest of pace, power, strength, stamina and iron will. Exhilarating, unpredictable and inspirational, a late goal from Germany levelled the scores and took the contest into extra time, but it was England’s boys who were on course to create history. In a nail-biting climax, after a disputed England goal, Geoff Hurst became the first man ever to score a hat-trick in a World Cup Final. Forty years on, the English players are still being awarded honours simply for having taken part. Moments in the game are imprinted in the memories of all who witnessed it and the match is regarded in awe by subsequent footballing generations.

One wonders why the producer of this dvd could not have put all of the features on one dvd, sparse are the offerings in terms of time - both discs are around 45 minutes each. I think we know the answer to this question. Why oh why didn't they give us the whole game, or at least highlights, on the second disc, even in black and white? For what content is available, the interviews are riveting and the overall quality is very high. I would love to have given this a 5-star review, but I can't help feeling that I've been a little ripped off.

wasn't all that easy to find as we were looking for the right video to show at an event that had general interest as well as being able to kindle fond memories for those who were about then. Although second hand it is in really good condition, in original box with original contents and the price was very good. It came very well packaged.
