DVD - The Damned United, Story of Brian Clough and Derby County

On Friday I watched a DVD, "The Damned United" which is a 2009 British sports drama film directed by Tom Hooper based on Brian Clough's tenure as manager of Leeds United.
Lots of the film is about Brian Cloughs time at Derby County, The film moves back and forth in time between his time at the Rams and Leeds United.
Of course this film was made after the Baseball Ground was demolished so filming was done at Chesterfield F.C's ground which looks sort of like the BBG.

It stars Michael Sheen as Brian Clough, Timothy Spall as Peter Taylor, Jim Broadbent as Sam Longson.
It was an interesting film and would recomend it.

I did a screengrab from the film (see above) this is clearly some archive footage of a Rams fans being interviewed on the corner of Derby Lane/ Walbrook Road. In the back ground is Upper Dale Road and on the right background is the Cavendish Hotel.
Exact map location here.

Similar to my then and now photograph of this area, see the third one down on this page.

This film is available from Play.com, Amazon and ebay and all the usual places.
There is a short trailor for the film on play.com

Some good footage on YouTube of the Man himself:
