Finding Jack Charlton (DVD)
The definitive film about the life of England World Cup winner and legendary Ireland manager, Jack Charlton.
Husband, father, grandfather, brother, footballer, World Cup winner, British hero, national treasure, and the man who changed a nation’s self-image through football.
The film-makers were granted unique access to Jack, his beloved wife Pat and son John, along with his grandchildren, who knew he was a soft touch for a sweetie from the jar.
A fitting reminder of why he was one in a million. Not a natural footballer (as he would admit himself) but through grit, determination and a wicked sense humour his career saw him conquer heights that others can only dream of from a hugely successful playing career to becoming the first and only Englishman to manage the Ireland football team.
“I wasn’t very good at playing football. But I was very good at stopping other people playing football” – Jack Charlton
