On April 15, 1989, an FA Cup semi-final football match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest entered the history books through tragic means, as 96 people lost their lives in the jammed-to-the-rafters terraces of Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield.
Twenty years on, the event is commemorated by this documentary from Brassneck TV, a production company formed by Kelly Cates (daughter of then-Liverpool team manager Kenny Dalglish), filmmaker Don Letts and producer/director John Osborne. Hillsborough combines archive footage with interviews from those who experienced the tragedy first-hand, including Dalglish, who speaks on-camera about the event for the first time.
