Panorama Hillsborough - How They Buried the Truth Britain's worst football disaster BBC documentary

A Panorama investigation reveals how police, politicians, lawyers and judges all played a part in burying the truth about Britain's worst football disaster.

Never-before-broadcast footage of the FA Cup semi-final in which 96 Liverpool fans died reveals a catastrophic failure by the emergency services, how lives might have been saved and how subsequent inquiries were misled.

And a former home secretary and former police chiefs are put on the spot about why a succession of official investigations left the truth hidden for a generation.

it was the police's fault? It's been PROVEN. Try watching and comprehending
the entire documentary. I know you'll have to try really hard. I mean there
are no ad breaks every 5 minutes and it's not sensationalised with dramatic
music and "action" but I'm sure if you try you can make it to the end and
have a better understanding of what this was all about. Credit to you for
actually showing a n interest in something that happened outside of the

I can't help myself but I was in similar situation at a concert (there many
people pulled out of the crowd, women fainted), I thought I was going to
die. And still I don't blame the organizer. I blame the people behind me
who were pushing like hell. They could stop outside and at least say
something to the security when it was too crowded inside but no one did
that. I'm not saying Hillsborough is the exact case but still I think the
people who were coming in are guilty too.

private company there would have been hell to pay. Sorry isn't good enough

I finally got to watching the first half of the Hillsborough documentary
from ESPN, and I must say, out of all sporting incidents that I've seen,
this is by far the most disturbing and sad thing I have witnessed.I had
been in a very little situation like this when I was at a concert and
everyone rushed to the main stage to see the headlining band. I got stuck
between a mass of people and a security wall and literally couldn't move at
all. I was stuck for honestly a half hour at least until i managed to force
my way out of that. To see so many people just stuck in that area, and also
the BLATANTLY AWFUL procedures done by the police to cause this... It truly
breaks my heart. May the 96 that perished RIP, and may the families who
lost their loved ones get retribution on the corrupt bastards and Fucking
Pathetic Cops that caused this and tried to cover it up.

A survivor of the 1985 fire at Bradford City in which 56 people died has
profoundly criticised the judge who conducted the official inquiry into
that disaster and who this week unfavourably compared the response of
families bereaved by the Hillsborough disaster to those of Bradford. Martin
Fletcher, who lost four close relatives in the fire, pointed out that Mr
Justice Popplewell's report had failed to overhaul safety at football
grounds and have fences in front of stands removed, and that Hillsborough
then happened four years later.

Popplewell said in a letter to the Times that the Hillsborough families are
"harbouring conspiracy theories'" rather than behaving with "quiet dignity
and great courage" like the Bradford families did.

Fletcher was 12 when he emerged alive from Valley Parade's inferno, but his
father, John, brother Andrew, grandfather Eddie and uncle Peter, with whom
he had been attending the Third Division match between Bradford City and
Lincoln City, all died. He was also at the FA Cup semi-final at
Hillsborough four years later, at which 96 Liverpool supporters died.

"For Popplewell to say that the Hillsborough families are 'harbouring
conspiracy theories' while the Bradford families 'organised a sensible
compensation scheme and moved on', is an absolute travesty of the truth and
a disgrace," Fletcher said.

"I have many unanswered questions still about the fire in which four of my
family died, as does my mother. Popplewell's report was nowhere close to
the quality of Lord Justice Taylor's report after Hillsborough, and since
reading it as an adult I have always been very disappointed in it and
considered it a poor piece of work.

"Rather than lecture the Hillsborough families not to ask questions, the
judge should ask himself why, after a disaster caused by a negligent
approach to safety at football, despite his report, standards in football
were allowed to remain so lamentably poor that another disaster happened at
Hillsborough just four years later."

Fletcher, now an accountant, also wholly rejected Popplewell's assertion
that "a sensible compensation scheme" was organised after Bradford. In
fact, there was a charitable disaster appeal, no organised compensation
scheme, and his mother, Susan, took a negligence action, which she had to
fund herself, against the club and West Yorkshire county council, for its
safety oversight of Valley Parade.

In the high court, both were found to have been negligent in allowing
litter to build up over many years under the void of the club's wooden main
stand, and to have done nothing to clear it despite explicit written
warnings that it was a fire risk. Two years later, the club were found to
be two-thirds liable, the council one third.

It still upsets me to this day and for the rest of my life what happened.
The establishment can say they're sorry, but saying that dosen't actually
mean anything to the victims and their families. To watch British police
try and tear down the fencing and give innocent football supporters the
kiss of life on the pitch knowing that their superiors was watching it all
on cctv and colluded with the goverment and the media to cover it up, is a
fucking disgrace.

Author toy2day1 (2 months)
It is obvious that this disaster was a responsibility of the Police. The
question is: Did they open this door deliberately to create problems (I
don't claim they wanted dead) just to find a reason to blame the Liverpool
fans because of their intractable and rebellious character of scousers, who
historically have been a danger for the establishent? I remind the
situation at Toxteth back in 1981.

Police departments should not be used at these events. Clubs should be
required to hire trained security/crowd control personnel, who are equipped
to manage large amounts of people, and know how to re act in a crisis. I
lived in the UK and now live in the US, so I have seen both sides of it.
This incident was caused by inept, bad management, and people who had no
business securing a very large gathering. Police departments are trained in
law enforcement, not crowd control. It took this tragedy to change things

Mixture of circumstances caused this disaster. Poor policing, Too many

tickets wanting to gain entry hence forcing the hand of SYP to open gate C.
I fail to believe Hillsborough was the only ground in the country where
something like this could have happened. Fortunately many lessons have been
learned from this day horrendous to think it took lost lives to get there.
What I don't understand is how this can be pinned solely on one entity for
example the police when many normal PCs acted heroically in trying to save
as many lives as possible when given no direction by there superiors...
