Ballet On Ice: An iconic City game

More To Watch

It's 50 years since Manchester City delivered a performance so majestic it earned comparisons to the beauty of the ballet.

Maine Road, December 9, 1967. The snow was falling and the pitch was glazed with ice. City's game against Tottenham somehow went ahead and the home side produced one the best performances in the Club's history, winning 4-1, a result that spread belief among the squad they could win the title. 

And, of course, they duly did. 

To celebrate the anniversary of that great day, CityTV has produced a documentary. We spoke to Francis Lee and Mike Summernbee, both of whom played in the game, and historian Gary James to get their perspective on such a momentous occasion. 

So, sit back and enjoy a look back at one of City's greatest displays.
