Govan's Sir Alex Ferguson is set to feature in a new BBC Scotland football documentary.

The documentary, Aberdeen '83: Once in Lifetime, will tell the story of Aberdeen FC’s remarkable run in the 1983 European Cup Winners’ Cup, which ended in a victory against Real Madrid.

The hour-long film features interviews from many involved in the success including Sir Alex himself, captain Willie Miller, and other members of the team such as Alex McLeish and Gordon Strachan.

Produced by Fever Media and Motif Pictures the documentary will also feature talks with fans who followed the team around Europe including to Gothenburg for the final.

David Harron, executive producer for BBC Scotland, said: "This was a seminal moment in the history of Scottish club football.

2Sir Alex Ferguson built Aberdeen into a formidable force in the domestic competitions before taking on Europe. His reflections on the campaign are among the many highlights in this archive-rich celebration of an unparalleled triumph for the club.

"It’s fascinating to hear the inside track from a squad that was packed full of great players while fans who followed the team throughout the season also share their recollections of a once-in-a-lifetime experience."

While James Craggs, the film's director added: "This has been one of the most satisfying stories we’ve told to date.

"We knew it was one of football’s most incredible stories, but didn’t realise quite how much until we spoke with Sir Alex, Archie Knox and the players.

"Aberdeen FC achieving what they did under Sir Alex will never happen again and that story makes this film one of our proudest yet."

The film will be out on Thursday, May 11 at 10.00pm.

You can watch it on the BBC Scotland Channel and iPlayer.
