‘Hillsborough’ Documentary, Live On ESPN At 8pm ET Tonight: Open Thread

hillsborough stadium 600x337 Hillsborough Documentary, Live On ESPN At 8pm ET Tonight: Open Thread

TV viewers in the United States will have a rare opportunity tonight to watch a stunning new documentary about the true story of what happened at the Hillsborough Disaster. Be sure to watch what I consider the most important soccer film ever made, live on ESPN tonight beginning at 8pm ET.

The public in the UK won’t get a chance to see the film until next year at the earliest due to the new inquest that began two weeks ago. Once the inquest is over, the BBC will schedule a time and date for the film to air.

Read: Our review of the Hillsborough documentary.

Before, during or after tonight’s film, feel free to post questions, comments or your observations regarding the film or the Hillsborough Disaster itself.

Listen: An interview with ‘Hillsborough’ director Dan Gordon.

As a resource, we’ve provided the following links that contain more insight regarding the Hillsborough Disaster that occurred on Saturday, April 15, 1989.

Watch the Hillsborough episode of Panorama entitled How They Buried The Truth,
Watch ‘Hillsborough: Never Forgotten,’ the full-length TV documentary,
Watch ‘Hillsborough: Searching for the Truth’ documentary,
The truth about the Hillsborough Disaster,
