Graham Taylor – The Impossible Job airs Mon 25 Oct on Channel 4

A rare chance to see this landmark observational documentary from 1994 following the England football manager at the time, Graham Taylor.

Channel 4’s award-winning documentary strand Cutting Edge filmed Taylor for 18 months as he attempted to steer the national team toward qualification for the 1994 World Cup – and failed. The kind of access that you wouldn’t get today reveals the unique strains and pressures of one of the roughest, toughest jobs in football: including media roasting; but also deeply private moments, as Taylor removes David Platt as England captain, or discusses Paul Gasgcoine with the FA.

A revealing and honest portrait of a decent man dealing with extreme pressure.

Dir: Ken McGill; Exec Prod: Neil Duncanson; Prod Co: Chrysalis Sport

Airdate: Monday 25 October 2021 at 11.10pm on Channel 4.
