Jack Charlton

BBC Two to broadcast feature-length documentary Finding Jack Charlton

The film tells the unlikely life story of Charlton, who, after winning the World Cup for England as a player, went on to become an Irish hero after leading their national team to their first World Cup as a manager.

Such successes are told against the background of the final year of his life stricken with dementia.

Charlton’s family, including his wife Pat and son John, are among the contributors.
