The three-part programme tells the story of the real life couple's marriage from when and how they met, to the 1966 World Cup and Bobby's sad death in 1993. Bobby and Tina Moore met when Tina (then Tina Dean) was aged just 15 when she met her future husband at an Essex nightclub. The couple married shortly after in 1962 and welcomed two children, Roberta and Dean, however the couple later separated and eventually divorced in 1986.

When Tina was six months pregnant with their daughter Roberta, Bobby was diagnosed with testicular cancer, putting his place in the World Cup tournament under threat. Eventually, Bobby had surgery and recovered. 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.
