“THE following story is based on real events.”
It was a freezing cold day in January when I visited the cast and production team on their final day of filming for BBC2 drama United.
The location was Seven Kings Park in Ilford, east London, which contains a number of relatively isolated football pitches.
Plus a small sports pavilion, including changing rooms, straight out of the 1950s.
It was here, in the space of one day, that many of the training scenes (both before and after the crash) featured in United were filmed.
With the production wrapping just before the fading afternoon winter light turned to darkness.
