Best (George Best: All By Himself)
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 also the lead in his own Shakespearean tragedy, a flawed genius, brought down by drink, temptation and depression. In this 30 for 30 documentary jointly presented by ESPN Films, the BBC and Northern Ireland Screen, director Daniel Gordon (Hillsborough) recounts the tale of this beloved but be-devilled superstar with riveting, evocative footage and testimony by those who knew him at his best - and worst.
'A poignant and tragic tale of a great talent wasted (he died in 2005, aged 59). But what a talent.' - Jeremy Aspinall, Radio Times
