Get £1 Off Amazon Video*
1966 is the year that resonates throughout English football. As a 40th anniversary celebration of Englands momentous World Cup victory and as a curtain-raiser to the 2006 competition in Germany in June, this documentary will bring Englands triumph to life in a way that most of us never saw it at the time (because we couldnt 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 Englands 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 - Englands Bobby Moore and West Germanys 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 Englands 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.
