Description

Seoul Glow tells the story of the Great Britain men's hockey team who won gold at the 1988 Seoul Olympics. The final caught the British public's imagination as they beat rivals West Germany in the gold-medal match. It led BBC commentator Barry Davies to utter the now infamous line: 'Where were the Germans? But, frankly, who cares?'
