About this deal

Anderson, Birtles and Woodcock all have their stories to tell and I’m sure many of us have heard some of the before.

Also, what bright spark had the idea to make a documentary about three lads from Nottingham but have it voiced by some cockney geezer?

A new film telling the inspirational story of three Nottingham Forest legends has its world premiere later this month.

This sort of thing is unrepeatable, to go from 2nd division to Kings of Europe in 3 years is the stuff of fairytales. A stark reminder that professional footballers, and all athletes, are human, and have their own stuff to deal with outside of running around after a ball. Anderson made history as the first black footballer to play for England, he went on to have many wins, both on and off the pitch, he was awarded an MBE in 2000 and was inducted into the Football Hall of Fame in 2004.Local Heroes featuring Gary Webster and Viv Anderson is streaming with subscription on Prime Video, available for rent or purchase on Apple TV, available for rent or purchase on Prime Video, and 1 other in the UK. It also explores “football’s political and cultural transformation over the years and draws parallels between life as a footballer in the 1970s to life in the footballing world now”.

The talented players defied the odds to rise to the top of professional football to become true sporting legends. The film interviews the players both in their homes, in studio and on the streets of Nottingham where they grew up, and is a poignant look at what life was like growing up in 60s Great Britain. The Film focuses on 3 players from that team who were all born and bred in Nottingham, and all went on to play for England.

Set against the cultural and social backdrop of Britain in the 1970s, it focuses on how the Nottingham-born trio triumphed over adversity to achieve great success.

All three players are really honest and speak so well about their lives - something today's players never do.A further film from Hayao Miyazaki looks on the cards, as he - thankfully - shows no sign of retiring after all. Back in the day you only qualified for the European Cup as actual champions of your league, rather than being 4th. All three are working-class men from Nottingham who fought their way to the top despite the obstacles they faced, which included rampant racism and discrimination. Local Heroes Documentary directed by John Warrington depicting the rise of footballers Viv Anderson, Garry Birtles and Tony Woodcock in the 1970s. Local Heroes is a sports documentary following the careers of three iconic Nottingham Forest players.
