He was football's first rock and roll star - a handsome, charismatic Belfast boy who could thrill and excite the crowds with every turn of the ball. But George Best was a flawed genius - brought down by drink, temptation and depression. Daniel Gordon (Hillsborough) recounts the tale of this beloved but be-devilled superstar with riveting footage and testimony by those who knew him at his best - and worst.
This skilfully wrought documentary draws you into the drama and helps us understand just why an estimated quarter of a million people lined the route of his funeral cortege to mourn his tragic passing.
