It was a fantastic documentary of a great, down to earth and humble man. A true legend.

Jack’s brother Bobby Charlton was knighted.  So why wasn’t Jack Knighted?

Jack had a tendency to be outspoken - Bobby always tugged his forelock.

I lived in Preston when Bobby managed North End and Jack was in charge of Middlesborough.  I went to watch the teams meet at Deepdale. I think Middlesborough won 4-1 or 4-2. I think Jack did a pretty good job at Middlesborough but this didn't get a mention in the program.

It did mention this game and showed a clip of them both in the dugouts, it didn't mention the final score though.

I wish they had shown more about his time as manager of Sheffield Wednesday.

More? There wasn’t any. No problem with that, a promotion from the third division wouldn’t hold much interest for anyone outside Sheffield.
What did surprise me was no mention of his walking out of his dream job at Newcastle when he had Waddle, Beardsley and Gazza in his squad.
