It’s the hope that kills you. In this three-part documentary airing weekly from 13th November, the heartbreak of England’s semi-final penalties loss is revisited, alongside the journeys of the Italian, Cameroonian, Yugoslavian and West German sides. Featuring iconic interviewees such as Paul Gascoigne, John Barnes, Terry Butcher, Jürgen Klinsmann and Lothar Matthäus, this authoritative documentary recognises Italia 90 as a turning point in history. Spanning the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Yugoslavian civil wars and English hooliganism to the rise of a new football culture in the 1990s, this is well worth a watch.
