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 dismanle damaging myths regarding fans’ conduct, perpetuated by sections of the popular press and seen by McGovern and others as symptomatic of an ongoing vilifi cation of the working class within the British media; the impact of Hillsborough has been considered an important factor in the setting up of a new official inquiry into the disaster.
