When English Football Ruled Europe is a two-part documentary series that focuses on the glory years between 1977 and 1984 when English football dominated the European Cup.
In that time, three clubs - Liverpool, Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa - lifted European club football's most prized trophy seven times, and this series speaks to the stars of those teams to find out the inside stories behind those triumphs, and how some of the most colourful characters in the game masterminded their clubs' victories.
