This fascinating collection of archive interviews with the celebrated footballer begins in the 1970s, when George Best is enjoying success at a young age. It continues into the 1980s, by which times he has become a husband and father and has also had to come to terms with alcoholism. Career and personal highs and lows are discussed, along with recollections of his upbringing, reflections on relationships, drinking and his deep passion for football. Final comments are heard in an interview with Nicky Campbell from 2000.
