How England won the World Cup
8.00-9.00pm Five

It's impressive to note that every survivor of the 1966 team turns out to help narrator and comparable national hero Sean Bean 'reveal' the story of England's World Cup winning side, although that's probably mainly because other channels have chosen more original ways to mark the build-up to this year's tournament. Even if the anecdotes and archive are over-familiar, it remains a great yarn, from Pickles and the wingless wonders through to Argentinian animals and a Russian linesman (a pity the North Koreans don't get a bit more credit for their equally extraordinary achievements, however). Perfectly proficient but not unmissable, unless you number recent football converts among your household.

Or if you're a total Bean-addict in need of your daily fix.

I reckon the team survivors just wanted to be in a programme featuring the Bean and no doubt Pickles would be there too were he still alive.
