The "thriller in Manila" was the third and final epic contest between the irrepressible heavyweight champion of the world, Muhammad Ali, and the hard hitting former champ 'Smokin' Joe Frazier.

Beyond the ropes (Disc 3)
This programme paints a detailed portrait of his life, not through well-thumbed history books but from a completely fresh perspective - through the eyes of the people who knew him best: friends, colleagues, adversaries and ordinary citizens. Individually, their testimonies are fascinating and often deeply moving. Woven together, they create a richly-coloured tapestry of an extraordinary life.
