It was the first example of an English soccer side winning a domestic treble of Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League and to mark the 25th anniversary of the campaign, manager Sir Alex Ferguson, plus players including David Beckham, Gary Neville, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Paul Scholes and more share their untold stories and personal struggles.

The Premier League and FA Cup triumphs were all well and good but it's the Champions League final against Bayern Munich that provides the denouement to the story. No spoilers, but suffice to say it's the most incredible finish to a European final in history and summed up the never-say-die spirit fostered by Ferguson.

Amazon Prime Video's latest foray into the sports documentary market after the success of its 'All or Nothing' series is produced by the same team that put together the recent Netflix series "Beckham," so you're in for a treat.
