UK BROADCAST: United Airs On The Drama Channel Tonight



The BBC drama United airs on the Drama channel in the UK at 9pm BST tonight.

David Tennant stars as Jimmy Murphy in this drama based on the true story of Manchester United's legendary Busby Babes, the youngest side ever to win the Football League, and the 1958 Munich air crash that claimed eight of their number. The film draws on first-hand interviews with the survivors and their families to tell the inspirational story of a team and community overcoming terrible tragedy. Jack O'Connell (Skins, Starred Up) plays Murphy’s young protégé Bobby Charlton, with Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible II) as Matt Busby and Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games) as Duncan Edwards. United was written by Chris Chibnall and directed by James Strong, the team that went on to reunite with David Tennant and create the award winning Broadchurch and its American remake Gracepoint. The drama originally aired in April 2011.

Find Drama on Sky channel 158, Virgin channel 190 and Freeview 20.
