Following the journey of five of the most memorable teams – England, Italy, Cameroon, Yugoslavia, and the Italia 90 World Cup Winners West Germany - this three-part documentary will combine edge–of-the-seat drama on the pitch with the momentous historical shifts that were happening beyond it. From the fall of the Berlin Wall to the civil wars of Yugoslavia; English hooliganism of the 1980s to the rise of a new culture of football in the 1990s, we will discover how Italia 90 was a tournament played in the crucible of a changing world.

"The Walk-In makes for uncomfortable viewing... It's gripping drama, and I'd argue, necessary viewing." - Evening Standard
