World Cup Stories
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Football World Cup will dominate our media from April 2006. The most significant pre-tournament event is an official FIFA television series, "World Cup Stories - the History of the Fifa World Cup". It is devoted to the amazing stories behind the World Cup, its top players and best teams. It shows the tournament's role in making football the world's foremost sport but also reveals it's importance to the development of big nations at key times in their history. The BBC is FIFA's production partner for this definitive series of six hour-long prime-time programmes. The World Cup attracts a worldwide TV audience of billions eclipsing even the Olympics in interest and bestowing iconic status upon its stars. The book accompanying the series will work closely with BBC Bristol's production team. It has access to an interview list that amounts to a who's who of still living World Cup legends - both stars and managers. The BBC has been granted access to FIFA's film archive, with footage including many never seen-before camera angles - not just the editor's cut. The "World Cup Stories" book will combine the freshness of the TV series treatment and the richness of the material compiled by the BBC, but anchored in a comprehensive on the page reference guide to the tournaments, the results, the teams and the stars. It will take the audience out of the football reference section and put it on the wish list of the mainstream audience attracted by the TV series. It is as much human interest as football reference. The book of the six-part prime-time BBC series with full trail rights.
