On May 11, 1985 at an end of season Third Division football match between Bradford City and Lincoln City, a fire took hold which got so quickly out of control that it consumed the two hundred foot long main stand at Bradford City in less than four minutes. Fifty six people died and many more were injured.
Gabby Logan, who witnessed the tragedy first-hand, revisits the worst fire disaster in English football history. The film, aired on the 30th anniversary of the fire, is the first time a full length documentary has been made about the events of that day. Gabby relates the countless heroes – including her father, the former Bradford City Assistant Manager Terry Yorath – who risked their lives to save others that day. Gabby interviews some of the key figures about their memories, visiting key locations with them. The story of the fire, and its legacy, is told through eyewitness testimony and illustrated with archive, some of which has not been seen since 1985.
