Synopsis:
This is the true story of Britain's greatest football hero - the only English captain to lift aloft the Jules Rimet World Cup in triumph. The story is told by the men he played with, people he loved and the England captains he inspired. In 1966 he led England to the World Cup glory after an unforgettable final against West Germany and, along with the Beatles, became a Sixties icon for success. With football action from all of Bobby's greatest games, here are the memories of his great team mates including Sir Geoff Hurst, Alan Ball, Sir Bobby and Jack Charlton, along with George Best, Terry Venables and Alan Shearer, and his greatest rivals, Franz Beckenbauer and Pele.
Jimmy Tarbuck and Sir Michael Caine also remember his contribution on and off the pitch. In an era of high earning football stars, he remains the ultimate role model for self-discipline, dedication and conduct on the field. "Bobby Moore was my hero", says David Beckham "when you think about Bobby, you just think 'legend'". There are poignant memories too, from Stephanie Moore and Tine Moore of the private man who shunned the limelight and refused to submit in his final battle against illness. An extra feature in addition to the 'Hero' film is the unveiling of his statue on the 11th May 2007 at the entrance to the new Wembley Stadium complex before many illustrious persons who gave their tributes to Bobby. Among those present included Sir Bobby Charlton, Sir Trevor Brooking, Jeff Powell the well known doyen of sports writing and the Right Honourable Tony Blair MP, the then Prime Minister. The statue and its inscription serve as a magnificent inspiration to future generations, and an everlasting memory to a true hero.
