Synopsis:
Christopher Eccleston and Ricky Tomlinson head a strong cast in Jimmy McGovern's emotionally powerful and highly acclaimed dramatisation of personal grief and public issues in the wake of the 1989 Hillsborough stadium disaster. Following the stories of three victims' families, from the initial excitement of match day to the legal battles that followed the tragedy, 'Hillsborough' presents a raw, honest portrayal of the campaign for truth within a culture of closed ranks and cover-ups.
The drama also seeks to dismantle damaging myths regarding fans' conduct, perpetuated by sections of the popular press and seen by McGovern and others as symptomatic of an ongoing vilification of the working class within the British media; the impact of 'Hillsborough' maintained the profile of the disaster in the public eye and has been considered an important factor in furthering the families' search for justice.
