1 x 60:00 min On Feb 6 1958 a plane carrying a Manchester United team, on the point of ruling European football, crashed on a runway in Munich killing 22 people including 7 players. Duncan Edwards, perhaps their greatest player, became the 8th player to die of his injuries fifteen days later in a German hospital. This DVD tells the full story of the Busby Babes, the death of the team and the birth of a legend, and the journey they took over the next ten years, still managed by Matt Busby, to finally become the best team in Europe. This unique documentary features extensive coverage of the 1948, 57, 58 and 1963 Cup Finals and the 1968 European Cup with action from legends Bill Foulkes, Tommy Taylor and Duncan Edwards, and the holy trinity of Charlton, Best and Law.

The story begins during Busby's playing career with Manchester City before the second world war, before chronicling how he put together the team which won the FA Cup in 1948 and the League title in 1952, including Johnny Carey, Jack Rowley, Stan Pearson, Charlie Mitten, Jimmy Delaney and others. By the time the club became League Champions, the team was ageing and Busby revolutionised football forever, rebuilding the team by putting his faith in youth.
In 1995, after the opening day of the Premier League season saw Manchester United defeated at Villa Park, Alan Hansen said, somewhat infamously, that "You can't win anything with kids"; United's team that day included "Fergie's Fledglings" Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Nicky Butt & David Beckham and the club would win the double of League and FA Cup at the end of that season. With a sense of history, Hansen might have thought twice about such a comment, as it echoed Busby's pioneering philosophy which led to the "Busby Babes" winning the League in 1956 & 1957. The team was built around the captaincy of Roger Byrne (sole remaining member of the 1952 team) and the awesome talent of Duncan Edwards, still a teenager when he won his first championship medal.Read more ›
What annoyed and let it down was the voice over commentary, which had several silly errors. Any United fan knows that Eddie Colman was not a winger; to state that Shay Brennan scored 3 against Sheffield Wednesday in the first game after Munich, when later the Pathe News reporter states correctly that he scored 2 is just stupid.
Early on, when discussing the 1948 team, Stan Pearson's picture is shown, not once but twice when talking about Charlie Mitten.
I also found it odd, and a little tiresome, that footage of Spurs in Europe should feature on a DVD of United! Padding?
Overall, it needed editing by someone who knew a little about United. Clearly this didn't happen.
