Hillsborough Never Forgotten: The full documentary

Following the findings late last year of the Hillsborough Independent Panel, the BBC have produced a new documentary on the 1989 Hillsborough Disaster.

Shown on BBC 2 on Wednesday evening, Hillsborough Never Forgotten attempts to pull together what happened on that fateful day in April 1989 until the events of recent months that still affect the family and friends of the victims.

Incredibly, the tragedy is still not over with an investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commision ongoing.

This documentary, which details the findings of the institutional cover-up whereby police, press and politicians represented the Liverpool victims as drunken, hooligans, was much needed.

As the notorious editor of The Sun, Kelvin MacKenzie, returns to the English media with a column in the Daily Telegraph, it feels like this documentary was another timely reminder of the worst tragedy to affect football in England.
