UEFA EURO: The Official Story is a truly compelling series that offers a unique and enthralling insight into one of football s most revered competitions: the UEFA EURO. This series of high-end documentaries captures the essence and recounts the stories behind each of the thirteen UEFA EUROs to date. Every programme reveals the drama, passion, and untold stories behind the tournaments. Each documentary begins by pinpointing a key moment from that tournament, from Antonin Panenka s classic penalty in 1976 to Oliver Bierhoff s golden goal in 1996 and Michel Platini s heroics in 1984. These iconic moments become the focal point from which the other themes and stories of that tournament are explored thorough the eyes of star players and coaches including: Luis Aragonés Just Fontaine Franco Baresi Jürgen Klinsman Franz Beckenbauer Michel Platini Iker Casillas Robert Prosinecki Alessandro Del Piero Terry Venables Each documentary blends these tales with exciting match action from each of the tournaments. The series also unveils previously unseen, behind-the-scenes footage, iconic stills which have undergone revolutionary photo separation, as well as additional newsreel footage to provide fabulous and timeless tributes to these historic events.

Each edition of the event is featured in a separate episode, though the 1960 and 1964 competitions are, understandably, covered together in the opening installment. Every programme is presented in widescreen, but the producers have this time treated the archive footage with care and added borders to original 4:3 footage to ensure the correct aspect and resolution. The failure to apply this to the sister boxset rendered that unwatchable.
Content-wise, each programme is essentially a documentary featuring narrated footage and multiple interviews with the stars of the day. The highly impessive cast includes Franz Beckenbauer, Bobby Charlton, Michel Platini, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, and Marco Van Basten who all contribute their insights, as do Jean-Marie Pfaff, Antonin Panenka, Peter Schmeichel, and too many more to mention. Clearly, huge effort went into this production, and these interviews are interwoven with the action and some cleverly-shot still photography. Coverage is very thorough with almost every goal in every tournament featured. The narrated script is informative and well-researched, and the accompanying soundtrack adds to the experience.
If you want a record of the European Championship, this is the boxset to plump for. This isn't an action highlights set with original match commentary (and, sadly, neither is the 50 Classic Matches collection with its dubbed commentary), but it is a wonderful trip through the history and emotion of a fantastic competition told by the men who made it: the players.
It's packaged very beautifully in a lovely gate-fold box and comes highly recommended.
The match action is fantastically well selected and is framed wonderfully well by former players and managers - and occasionally journalists - discussing the action and putting it into perspective. So enjoyable...

Overall, very good. The only lacklustre episode was the review of 2008. The fast and manic editing of 2008 made it a eye sore, whilst with the other episodes, it was the era before... Read morePublished on 3 Sept. 2014 by Reggie James
