In 1990 the five year ban against English football teams participation in European competitions, put in place by UEFA following the Heysal disaster in 1985, was lifted. Only two sides from England were allowed to compete Aston Villa in the UEFA cup and Manchester United in the European Cup Winners Cup (Liverpool were given an extra year's ban which mean no English's side participated in the European Cup). On May 15th Manchester United were about to play in a European final, against Barcelona, for the first time in 22 years. Granada television choose to commemorate this achievement by broadcasting a profile of the man who did most to lead the way in for English teams in Europe, Sir Matt Busby.
With contributions from Bobby Charlton, Dennis Law, Pat Crerand and Jackie Blanchflower this documentary maps out Manchester United's participation in Europe under Busby from their first season failure to the ashes of the Munich air disaster 1958 and finally culminating twenty years later in the winning of the European Cup in 1968.
Narrated by Robert Powell.
