Description

SBH:Return Ticket - Harry Gregg, the Manchester United goalkeeper who survived the Munich Air Crash, recalls the events of that day and his life after. Includes Sound Archive material.

PRE:His memory of the crash. Thought that he'd never see his family again. Crawled out of the wreckage. Saw captain and heard child crying. Found baby in the wreckage. Found Jackie Blanchflower and tied a tie as a torniquet around his wounded arm. Scene at the hospital. Arrival at hospital of friends and relatives from home. (7'00") Thought Duncan Edwards would survive, but he died after a few days. The trip back by rail, boat and car was scary because they were still in shock from the crash. Kept their sanity on their return by trying to build up the United team again. Captain Jim Thain's fight to clear his name, which he did after 11 years. He (Gregg) was a survivor, not a hero.
