Pele, Argentina and the Dictators is a documentary about how, in the 1970 and 1978 World Cups, Brazil and Argentina's military dictators took a vested interest in their nation's football dreams. It is on BBC1 on June 28 at 23:45 and might be worth a watch and probably on iPlayer afterwards

I watched it. Considering the calibre and array of people they had access to in making the programme it all felt a little superficial and rushed, whereas I imagine they'll have collected enough material to put together a more considered and in-depth story/stories, richer in context.

Worth a look though, despite the white subtitles against white/light backgrounds.

I enjoyed the Thierry Henry programme about the history of the Euros, not having seen it when it first came out

Anyone who hasn't seen the film Marvellous simply must - BBC 2 tonight at 9. It's a true story - I believe Bob L Hatt knew him - and simply wonderful
