The drama originally aired in 2017

Bobby and Tina were together at the height of Bobby's fame when he was captain of the England squad and lead them to victory at the World Cup in 1966. The former West Ham player was hailed as a legend in the sport right up until his death in 1993. The show was created from Tina's memoirs, Bobby Moore: By The Person Who Knew Him Best and Tina herself, now 75-years-old, worked as a script consultant. The footballer's widow even met with the cast during production, particularly Michelle, giving her anecdotes and tips on playing her.
