BAFTA and BBC Two present "United" screening and Q+A
BAFTA and BBC Two will be hosting a preview screening of "United" in Manchester later this month, followed by Q+A with with Dougray Scott and Jack O'Connell
United, which also stars David Tennant, is based on the true story of Manchester United's legendary 'Busby Babes', the youngest side ever to win the Football League, the 1958 Munich air crash that claimed eight of their number, and the extraordinary spirit of a city that rebuilt the team in the wake of the disaster.
The film draws on first-hand interviews with the survivors and their families to tell the inspirational story of a team and community overcoming terrible tragedy. The Munich Air Crash killed 23 of the 44 passengers onboard, including supporters, journalists and embassy staff.
