Description

TV drama following the turmoil of football club Manchester United through the Munich air disaster that killed a number of its staff and star players.

In February 1958 a flight leaving Munich-Riem Airport crashed on its third attempt to take off.

On board were the famous 'Busby Babes', a team of gifted young players led by the famous manager Matt Busby, returning to Manchester after successful qualification to the European cup semi-finals.

A number of players, including Duncan Edwards, were killed in the crash, and still more injured.

This BBC dramatisation of events follows star player Bobby Charlton (Jack O'Connell) and coach Jimmy Murphy (David Tennant) as they attempt to recover from the crash.

With Busby (Dougray Scott) still hospitalised with his injuries and so many of their players gone, stand-in coach Murphy and the still-grieving Charlton will be crucial to the success on the field that would honour those so tragically lost.
