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