It was the soundtrack to our lives in the 20th century and perhaps its greatest entertainment. It is a story of heroes, villains, great teams, great upsets, heart-stopping emotion and nail-biting tension. It is also a tale of courage, despair and tragedy. Now, for the first time, the full glory of sport in the 20th century is brought to you in one action-packed programme. A Century of Sport reveals the great champions - from Joe Louis to Muhammad Ali, WG Grace to Ian Botham, Jesse Owens to Carl Lewis, Pele to Michael Owen - as well as the great teams - Brazil 1970, the Lions 1974, and Manchester United 1999. The triumphs have also been tempered by tragedies including the Munich Air Disaster, Heysel and Hillsborough, the Israeli fatalities at the Munich Olympics, 83 killed at Le Mans and the stabbing of Monica Seles.
