Documentary looking back at the 1954 World Cup, which was a high-scoring affair staged in Switzerland that saw West Germany emerge triumphant. The Germans faced Hungary in a final that became known as the Miracle of Bern, with the highly fancied Magyars being stunned by an incredible comeback having led 2-0 in the first 10 minutes. England and Scotland were the British representatives in a tournament dominated by European teams, with Uruguay and Brazil the only South Americans to reach the knockout stage.
