The long-form documentary follows Liverpool FC from its glory days in the 80s through 30 years of struggle to return to the top of English football.

BBC Sport has produced a 1h30m documentary marking Liverpool’s return to the top of English football as Premier League champions.

Liverpool FC: The 30-Year Wait promises insight into why the club’s domination of football in the 1980s melted away; how the club’s identity was shaped by the tragedies of Heysel and Hillsborough; and the struggle to keep up with the rapidly changing world of football, before moving on to the Jurgen Klopp revolution that returned them back to the summit of the game.

The documentary is narrated by Liverpool fan Jason Isaacs and includes contributions from Jurgen Klopp, Rafa Benitez, Roy Evans, Gerard Houllier and Brendan Rodgers; and key players including Mohamed Salah, Jordan Henderson, Virgil Van Dijk, Robbie Fowler, John Barnes and Michael Owen.

The production was post-produced at Timeline North at MediaCityUK. The offline and online edit was by Dom Robson-Smith, the colourist was Neill Jones and the dubbing mixer Dan Piggott.

Liverpool FC: The 30-Year Wait airs on Sunday, August 30 at 9pm on BBC Two.
