    • Synopsis
    • BUSBY’S OLYMPIC BABES is the story of the Great Britain Olympic Football team which, in 1948, was transformed from a squabbling assortment of amateur strangers to worthy Olympians by a young Matt Busby, arguably the greatest football manager in British history. A blend of ‘Chariots of Fire’,’ The Damned United’ and ‘The Full Monty’, BUSBY’S OLYMPIC BABES will be a warm, funny and compelling drama exploring how a bunch of ordinary blokes from all over Britain juggled family, jobs and footie practice to overcome overwhelming odds and make post-war Britain proud.
