Ge­orge Best: All By Him­self

TV Times - - Film Guide - np

Film / 9.00pm / BBC2

a fine doc­u­men­tary about one of the world’s great­est foot­ballers, this is an hon­est ac­count of the rise and fall of the boy from Belfast. His skill and good looks earned him fame in a way that was un­prece­dented, but the weight of his star­dom was to also be his down­fall, as he relieved the pres­sure by hit­ting the bot­tle. This film doesn’t shy away from the more tawdry as­pects of Best’s life, but it is no hatchet job.
