Taylor's reign revisited

Hey folks - here's a quick and very belated note to let you know that ITV is tonight showing once again the landmark Graham Taylor documentary An Impossible Job.

An Impossible Job was broadcast by Channel 4 in 1994 and followed Taylor’s reign as England manager during qualification for the 1994 World Cup through to his dismissal after failing to guide the team to the finals in the USA. The film is one of the most well-known and best remembered football documentaries of all time, but has not been repeated on television since it was first shown fourteen years ago - and the full-length 90-minute version has never been shown on British television.

ITV has also commissioned a new documentary in which Taylor examines one of the toughest jobs in world football, that of England manager. The documentary, produced and directed by Don Perretta and Carey Dunn, features Taylor in conversation with ex-England players, managers and figures from the international game such as Slaven Bilic and Johann Cruyff, as well as an interview with current England manager, Fabio Capello.

An Impossible Job will be shown tonight on ITV4 at 11pm and again on Tuesday 7 October while the new documentary appears on ITV1 on Wednesday 8 October. England’s first World Cup 2010 qualifier at Wembley will be live on ITV1 on Saturday 11 October.
