Bill Shankly, Liverpool Football Club’s legendary manager, will be the subject of a new BBC feature length documentary that will hit the screens before the end of the year.
Bill Shankly was a hero to many people across the city and the film will look at his career and his goal to make Liverpool a ‘bastion of invincibility.’ Shankly: Nature’s Fire finished filming at the end of May this year and is due to air within a few months.
The Scottish manager was a true character on the streets of Liverpool and the new documentary will follow his story from start to finish, showcasing his charisma, strength, uniqueness and charm.
Shankly: Nature’s Fire
The film has received a great amount of support from the footballing community, with former players from Scotland and Liverpool Football Club acting as contributors. His family, fans and journalists, including Sports writer Hugh Mcillvanney and Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh, have also taken part to make this the best tribute to the legend himself.
The film was two years in the making and Peter Hooton, producer of the film and lead singer of local band The Farm was determined to do the story justice.
He said: “Shankly epitomised a different set of values that I think are still admired to this day. I agreed to be involved in the making of this documentary because Shankly was my boyhood hero”.
Shankly: Nature’s Fire will feature archive footage and interviews with those who knew the man best, footage from matches and from his day to day life to give a great representation of the personality and charm that the man himself was known for.
Liverpool FC’s Hero
Bill Shankly was the saviour of Liverpool football club, he took the club from a dwindling position in Second Division to a team that had a trophy cabinet to be proud of, as well as a solid place in First Division.
His now legendary quote, “my idea was to build Liverpool into a bastion of invincibility. My idea was to build Liverpool up and up until eventually, everyone would have to submit and give in’, epitomised his attitude and determination to turn the club around.
He wasn’t always about the football, he was a stable family man who was loved by the community and his relatives alike. His grandson, Christopher Carline, credits his Nan, Bill’s wife, with the success and unfaltering determination of his Granddad. Agnes Wren Shankly supported the Scottish native through everything and is an icon and role model for the modern-day WAG.

Marie Wright, a 67-year-old Irish gran, has always dreamed of watching LFC at Anfield. Unfortunately, Marie was recently diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, given just weeks to live in February 2016, which is why the kind-hearted fans from Irish Reds Club and Dublin 15 LFC supporters groups in Dublin have decided to make her dreams come true by taking her to a game. Not only did the groups arrange wheelchair access at Anfield and a carer for Marie, but they recently contacted The Shankly Hotel Director and Bill Shankly’s grandson, Chris Shankly Carline, who was more than happy to make her visit to Liverpool extra special.
Marie recently commented:
“I couldn’t believe it when we managed to get tickets for the match and the support we’ve received ever since has just been amazing. When the appeal was first set up, I thought this was the kind of thing that happens to other people, but it’s just grand how people have reacted.”
Meeting a legend
Touched by the story, Chris has arranged for Marie to visit our Liverpool hotel ahead of LFC’s first home game against Leicester City on 10th September. Both Marie and her family will join our hotel to meet none other than LFC legend Roy Evans, who was a former football player before he became the team’s manager in the 1990s.
Roy is hosting the Shankly Hotel’s Bastion Match Day Experience on the day, so was more than happy to take the time to chat with Marie about LFC. In addition to meeting Roy, Marie will have an opportunity to browse the previously unseen Bill Shankly memorabilia on display at The Shankly Hotel.
Chris Shankly Carline recently commented: “I’m really happy The Shankly Hotel can add to Marie’s experience of visiting Liverpool and Anfield, which is due to the generosity of the Irish Reds’ fans. We look forward to meeting Marie and hope she and her family have a brilliant time both at the hotel and watching LFC in action.”
