      ITV drama on Ann Williams

      New drama starting on ITV about Ann Williams battle for justice over Hillsborough. Unusual for ITV. Hope it’s well done

      Itv also showed Hillsborough drama by Jimmy Mcgovern. Apparently Ann's family are already praising Maxine Peake for the way she portrays Ann.

      Just like the other Hillsborough drama I think it'll be a tough watch.

      Not to be missed this, a insight into the Real Iron Lady and her battle for justice for her Son and 96 other brothers and sisters we lost that Horrific  day,

      Correct me if I’m wrong but Anne Williams was instrumental in HFSG, and was their main spokeswoman initially, I believe Margaret Aspinall who also lost her Son James, took over when Anne became too ill, it was so cruel she didn’t live long enough to hear that fans were judged blameless !


      RIP ANNE WILLIAMS Gone But Never Forgotten -  You’ll Never Walk Alone

      Yeah you're wrong, Anne was never really head of HFSG, that was Trevor Hicks.

      Looking forward to watching this, although like Huyton Red says, it will be a hard watch. I met Anne quite a few years ago after a few of us had done some fund raising, she was a remarkable women who inspired so many, may she RIP.

      YNWA Anne Williams.

      Agree Walt although i will watch, over the years since i always felt that justice would never happen but if it did it wouldn’t be the justice those families deserved, the only solace  they got really was the ‘fans weren’t to blame’ ruling, those families  wanted accountability and that was never going to happen, the establishment deliberately dragging their feet year upon year, we all knew the establishment would close ranks and look after their own, even to this day there are those who still blame the fans and refuse to besmirch that lying C**t Duckenfield, he Virtually got away with it, as did all his wee cronies.

      I’d love to know where that C**t Duckenfield lives, pay him a wee visit in the night !!!

      Heartbreaking to watch this drama ,incredible injustices and lies that can never be changed , I have been a Liverpool fan for over 50 years although I am from Leeds , this drama is bringing home to me what effects on the city and community It had and still has .Incredible resilience from Anne and the people affected who doggedly took on the establishment against all the odds .

      what a hard watch, but for me the best (so far) but really nails the important points about the cover up.

      During the police cover up, there are so man amazing crimes committed that its hard to figure out where to start, but the coroner decision, the 6 hour interview of a heroic copper forced to change his statement (and countless others), the denial of 42 ambulance's to help (for the fighting to calm down...).....defies belief.

      Thank god there was justice in the end.

      BTW Maxine Peake is incredible.

      Such an emotional watch but one that is needed for some people to recognise the true horrors of that day and beyond for all affected.  What courage and determination she and others showed to uncover the lies and deceit that followed

      I watched it all in one go, brought  back so many horrible memories, I got extremely lucky that day, I swapped my Leppings lane ticket for one in the stand above, thankfully the fella i swapped with survived, I’m only a wee fella so I doubt if I would have survive had I not swapped, I had hundreds of sleepless nights mulling over ‘what if’ and felt terribly guilty for years,

      The show was extremely well written and Maxine Peake was just simply incredible, there was plenty left out but I guess it would have taken hours to view if everything was included, I’m glad I watched it and I’m relieved to have done so all in one go, I sat on my own and had to pause now and then to dry up, especially when Anne passed, I’m a Red blooded male and was a typically hard hearted Glaswegian,  but Hillsborough changed all that, I found myself bubbling during certain movies or a event where there were many fatalities, I was a f***in wreck when my lad shot out of his mam’s growler,

      It still angers me how those responsible got off Scot free without a sniff of accountability, even after all these years the establishment still close ranks, the ppl I most feel sorry for are obviously the families concerned, many of those parents at the time will have passed now, some without knowing the truth, I often wonder what have become of those who died, like Kevin, Anne’s son, or James Aspinall, Margaret’s son, the Hicks sisters, Jon Paul Galhooley, Stevie G’s cousin, and others,

      It was a difficult watch, can’t get away from that especially if you were there, if your having inhibition’s I urge you to watch it, after I did I felt it was like a kind of closure, I’m hoping so, apart from the annual anniversary I’d rather it was put on the back burner, we will never forget of course, but like losing a loved one you learn to cope .



      RIP 97.   YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE.

      Sometimes these programs go completely the wrong way and almost make a mockery out of what happened because they are more bothered about ratings than what it's actually supposed to be about. Not this though, think it's been really well put together and Maxine Peake is nailing it.

      There hasn't though!! We've had the inquests overturned, but there hasn't been any true justice for what actually took place.
