Sixty-four games, three pieces of silverware and a return to the Champions League. At the conclusion of Jose Mourinho's first year in charge at Old Trafford, United fans knew they had witnessed something good.
The arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the return of Paul Pogba grabbed the headlines as the season approached. Ten months later, on an emotional night in Stockholm, the unity created between players and supporters was never more evident as the Reds won the Europa League to complete the clean sweep of all major trophies. They also captured the Community Shield and the EFL Cup in a pulsating final at Wembley. Wayne Rooney surpassed Sir Bobby's goalscoring record, while the spirit of Sir Matt lived on as yet more talented youngsters made their assured bow on the first team stage.

Using state of the art technology to restore original archival footage which is more than a 100-years old, Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell this story: the men who were there.
Driven by a personal interest in the First World War, Jackson set out to bring to life the day-to-day experience of its soldiers. After months immersed in the BBC and Imperial War Museums’ archives, narratives and strategies on how to tell this story began to emerge for Jackson. Using the voices of the men involved, the film explores the reality of war on the front line; their attitudes to the conflict; how they ate; slept and formed friendships, as well what their lives were like away from the trenches during their periods of downtime.
(The film was created using original footage of World War I from the Imperial War Museum's archives, most of it previously unseen, alongside audio from BBC and IWM interviews of British servicemen who fought in the conflict. Most of the footage has been colourised and transformed with modern production techniques, with the addition of sound effects and voice acting to be more evocative and feel closer to the soldiers' actual experiences.)

In 1962 four young men John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to form the 20th century musical phenomenon known as The Beatles.
The band stormed Europe in 1963, and, in 1964, they conquered America. Their groundbreaking world tours changed global youth culture forever and, arguably, invented mass entertainment as we know it today. All the while, the group were composing and recording a series of extraordinarily successful singles and albums. However the relentless pressure of such unprecedented fame, that in 1966 became uncontrollable turmoil, led to the decision to stop touring. In the ensuing years The Beatles were then free to focus on a series of albums that changed the face of recorded music.
