BBC TWO TO CHART THE EVOLUTION OF THE PREMIER LEAGUE
BBC Two announce new 4-part series.
The Premiership: A Whole New Ball Game (w/t) is a new 4x60' documentary series, charting the creation and evolution of the Premier League from 1992 to 2000.
The BBC tease: It will tell a definitive insiders’ story of how successive groups of business brains, players, agents and journalists utterly transformed our 100 year old national game and created an off-and-on pitch soap opera that continues to enthral an audience of nearly five billion people around the world for 38 weeks a year.
Focussing on individual stories told first-hand by a cast of famous and less-familiar faces, the series will explore the extraordinary experience of those central to the rapid evolution of the most high profile and lucrative sporting competition the world has ever seen - many of them young men from ordinary homes who overnight became millionaires and cultural icons amid the shifting attitudes and social change of 1990s Britain.
