29 May 1985: riots ahead of the European Cup final between Liverpool and Juventus cause a wall to collapse in Belgium s Heysel Stadium. Thirty-nine fans die and many more are injured. Incredibly, the match goes ahead and is broadcast around the world, as the authorities claim postponement could incite further trouble - yet many remain haunted by the decisions taken. Bruce Grobbelaar is among the players returning to Heysel to tell their stories for the 20th anniversary; this powerful and moving documentary also has contributions from victims and officials, and harrowing footage of the tragedy.
