Sir David Jason presents Alfie's Boys, the story of how Sir Alf Ramsey built a team to win the World Cup in 1966.

Sir David takes us back to the changing times of the sixties and sets the context for the one and only time England have been at the top of world football. He charts how and why Sir Alf picked the characters he wanted, and his relationship with them as they bonded into a world-class side.

Featuring unseen archive from the BBC vaults and anecdotes from Sir Bobby Charlton, Jack Charlton, Jimmy Greaves, George Cohen, Tina Moore, Harry Rednapp, Terry Venables, Sir Geoff Hurst, Gordon Banks and many other squad members, this is a definitive record of their great journey as a team.
