This important and compelling drama sheds light on how the worst disaster ever to hit British sport happened, and its devastating consequences. The programme follows three families from the initial excitement at getting match tickets, through the disaster which claimed 96 lives, to the emotional turmoil and legal struggle which follows. It reveals how police evidence went missing and critical witnesses were not called, and raises questions about whether more people could have been saved.
