    • Synopsis
    • Bobby explores the remarkable true story of English footballing legend and World Cup Winning Captain, Bobby Moore.

      A footballer, a father, a cultural icon and a footballing legend, Bobby Moore was a hero to successive generations of footballers and football fans alike, described by Pele as the best defender he ever played against.

      At the height of his fame, not only did he captain his country to victory at the 1966 World Cup, but alongside icons such as The Rolling Stones, renowned photographer David Bailey and Sir Michael Caine, he helped spread the influence of British culture across the globe.

      From huge success on the field for both his country and his beloved West Ham United, to personal tragedies away from football – including overcoming a cancer at aged just 24 - Bobby tells in intricate detail just how this legend became a global sporting hero. A man full of contradictions, he was renowned for his love of a drink and a party, yet his stoicism, courage and single-minded approach to both his life, and his football, was second to none.

      Bobby will feature exclusive interviews with family members who knew him best, plus icons including Pele, Wayne Rooney, Roy Hodgson, Paul Gascoigne, Gordon Banks, Sir Geoff Hurst, with Russell Brand, Ray Winstone and more.

      It will also feature previously unseen match footage that has been unearthed following an intensive year-long search, including from that 1966 World Cup Final!

      With the 50th anniversary of England’s famous World Cup win approaching, there has never been a better time to explore and reappraise the impact of a man who influenced and inspired the beautiful game like few others.
