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.

And quite frankly, any social activity which requires half the manpower of
a good sized police force to ensure riiots don't break out is one which
anyone taking their children to needs shooting.

Football is the pastime of mindlessly violent yobs and hooligans. If music
fans ever once behaved like this, every live venue in the UK would be shut
down. But this is just "any other day" stuff for a mob of mud gutted
illiterate ex-cons. The whole bloody game needs shut down if you ask me.

The Police in generel weren't to blame. Obviously several highly ranked
officers like duckenfield and the people who warped the statements are.
Also the Sheffield wednesday chairman witnessed a previous event in which
many had broken ribs and arms- he passed this off saying "bollocks, no one
would have died". Add in the fact that the ground did not give the
liverpool fans the larger stands to be in.

Good quality content! Compliments to BBC!

The most suprising thing here is that this was the first big game of mister
Duckenfield... OFCOURSE you make mistakes if you have to sort things out on
your own when you don't even know what experience is! What the actual f*ck
was the police thinking!? That a man without experience could lead a big
game like this!? Atleast a more experienced man should have been there to
work with him that day (and probably the days before this match aswell).

And even than, a blind cow could see that the side pends were empty in
comparrison to the middle one. And the only way into that pend, was the
tunnel. His brain should have told him to close that f*ckin tunnel. And why
on earth didn't anyone tell him that maybe the tunnel should close? If you
are afraid of your boss, you aren't having a nice working environment

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.

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.

today we hear the same old boring shit about scousers being lazy,
murdering robbing bastards. after over 25 years of watching cctv of
Hillsborough the police have yet to find a single drunk scouser,a single
scouser charging the gates,a single scouser robbing the dead or a single
scouser drunk. yet people still belive the lies!amazing

You 100% right Thatcher was very pro pice and armed forces regardless of
facts.. My comment specific to Straw was at the cynicism In promising an
enquiry to the electorate, and at the same time burying it and doing it
effectively for show.

Which was more deviant in my view than just flat out refusing it in the
first place.

I worked in various Merseyrail Maintenance sites from 1980 to 1992. As a
football supporter I got to know the staff in my area well. Throughout this
period, I enjoyed the banter, but, there was always those that left me
greatly concerned. Many Liverpool FC fans openly stated that they went to
matches without tickets and it was clear that this was done on a regular
basis by hundreds of fans each week. One guy told me that he hadn't paid to
get into a match for nearly 3 seasons. This was echoes by many others. They
used their free travel passes to get to games then mobbed the gates and
forced their way in.
Whilst the Police should have controlled the crowds, reacted better and
quicker, no excuses, the prime cause of this disaster was that Liverpool FC
fans went with the sole intention of entering the ground without tickets.
It has been estimated that 11,000 people without tickets forced their way
The problem with many Liverpool FC fans is that they had a culture of
arrogant indifference to what they did. If you want to hear the words from
a selection of Liverpool FC fans I would suggest you take a look at Danny
Dyers "The Real Football Factories" available of Youtube.
The sad fact is that legitimate honest Liverpool FC fans were killed by
people who considered it their given right to terrorize other clubs and
grounds for their own pleasure and profit.

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 Paul Simpson (2 months)
You don't think of it as " The Hillsborough Disaster" anymore, it's more
like "The Hillsborough Cover up".
On the day, the police made genuine innocent, mistakes that any one could
make, but to then try to shake off the blame, like a naughty sly, weak,
school kid, and cover up their mistakes, is the most despicable deed, any
Police force, any where, has ever committed.
The misery they have piled on the families affected by the disaster should
be taken fully into account, when the enquiry finally catches up with the
selfish, cowardly scumbags.
That is if the authorities don't kick it in to the long grass, over and
over again, until all the guilty are dead, just like Jimmy Saville.

I am a Man United fan and the truth is now coming out about what
happened.The Police were indeed responsible for not doing their jobs
properly,but worse still for covering up their appalling mistakes.And they
should be held to account.And yes it MUST also be said that those who
turned up in their thousands WITHOUT tickets who got in to the ground
because of the Police balls ups are also responsible in my eyes,and let me
make it clear those who died were not guilty for their deaths.Whether or
not the familes will get unlawful killing verdicts at the new inquests I am
not sure of given the verdicts that legally are available to a Coroner,or
whoever is conducting them.

Disgraceful, although being from Northern Ireland I can't say I'm
surprised. The British Government was also responsible for the murder of 13
civil rights protesters (mostly 17 year-olds) in 1972 which they covered up
saying the crowd fired shots at them first. Only recently have we received
an apology from David Cameron and cleared of any fault on our side (it was
proven that not one shot was fired by anyone except the British army). I
hope the 96 Liverpool fans and their families get the justice they deserve!

Americans, will you PLEASE stop commenting on something you know fuck all
about? What is this thing you cunts have with blaming the fans when we KNOW

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

All it needed was better policing outside the ground and one man giving the
order for the tunnel to be closed to send people into the adjoining pens.
The police had CCTV showing them exactly what was happening. Total, utter

people. And the delay over sending in the ambulances turned it into a crime
against humanity.
