Almost a prequel to the acclaimed Class of ’92, Busby is going to be the next must-watch for any Manchester United fan or anyone with the slightest interest in beautiful game which undeniably would not have been made the same without the impact made by Sir Matt Busby.
Busby will be released by Altitude this November as a feature documentary on Matt Busby, one of the greatest, most influential managers in football history.
During his 25 years in charge of United, the charismatic Scot led the cub to domestic dominance and European glory. He developed some of the greatest players to grace a football pitch, such as George Best and Sir Bobby Charlton, one of the original ‘Busby Babes’.
From the wreckages of the Munich air crash, Busby changed the shape of United and the city of Manchester as a whole, and this new documentary is the definitive story of the man himself.
It will feature unseen archive footage with interviews with those who knew Busby best including the remaining Busby Babes and members of the 1968 European Cup winning team, the Class of 92, and others.
Busby was produced by Leo Pearlman and co-produced by Heather Greenwood at Fulwell 73, the BAFTA-winning team behind Class of ’92, I Am Bolt and Sunderland Till I Die.
