Legend's End - George Best's Last DayA short vignette from the point of view of a member of the public as the day of Saturday 3rd December 2005 dawns over Belfast and George Best, the legend, is buried in his hometown. Commissioning Editor, 3 minute wonders, Channel 4 said… “The first FourDoc to bring a tear to my eye. Just very clever and simple really. The Super 8 film suited the subject matter so perfectly, and the nostalgic 60s feel made you feel that it was compiled from archive footage rather than the present, which suited the subject so very well – it made it feel historic, important and sad. The music and old fashioned caption cards were also intrinsic to this feeling and worked harmoniously. A fitting tribute!” Screened on Channel 4/More 4.
