Nation on Film: Sir Bobby Remembers.
Fifty years on, Sir Bobby Charlton tells the story of the Munich air disaster. Watching archive footage, some for the first time, he charts the emotional journey from the glory days of the Busby Babes to the tragic events of February 6th 1958.
As one of the survivors, Sir Bobby gives his own personal account of what happened. He talks about team mates who died, and discusses the impact the disaster had on his own career, the city of Manchester and the world of football.
Players and journalists were among the 23 people who died after British European Airways Flight 609 failed to take off at Munich airport.
