An in-depth documentary looking back on the 1982 World Cup in Spain, which saw Argentina's Diego Maradona make his debut on the world stage.

Brazil's dazzling football lit up the 1982 World Cup, but the flamboyant artistry of the likes of Falcao, Socrates and Zico was not enough to bring them a fourth trophy. Instead, it was Italy who triumphed, the goals of Paolo Rossi helping the Azzurri to their first World Cup triumph for 44 years.
