TV viewers in the United States will have a rare opportunity tonight to watch a stunning new documentary about the true story of what happened at the Hillsborough Disaster. Be sure to watch what I consider the most important soccer film ever made, live on ESPN tonight beginning at 8pm ET.
The public in the UK won't get a chance to see the film until next year at the earliest due to the new inquest that began two weeks ago.

Today marks the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster. Liverpool and Everton football club paid the respectby holding a memorial service to remember the 96 innocent souls, who lost their lives on April 15, 1989.
Twenty five years after the Hillsborough Disaster, there are still people who question who was to blame for the tragedy that killed 96 fans. With Tuesday's premiere of 'Hillsborough,' a brand new documentary that will air on ESPN at 8pm ET, the myth that Liverpool fans were to blame can unequivocally be ruled out.
It's going to be an emotional day on Merseyside today and around the world as soccer fans come together to share their respect and remembrance for the 96 innocent soccer fans who died at the Hillsborough Disaster 25 years ago. Plus, there's an English football match to be played as Liverpool takes on Manchester City in the biggest Premier League match of the season thus far.
The Premier League's biggest match of the season kicks off on Sunday morning between Liverpool and Manchester City. A win for either club will significantly boost its chances of edging closer to the Premier League title. A loss could rock the team's chances and their confidence in the remaining weeks of the season.
BBC's TV programPanoramahas viewed never before broadcast footage of the Hillsborough Disaster, and has shown that despite the coroner's ruling that all those who died that day had been beyond help by 3:15pm crucial evidence has been found that an off-duty police officer tried to revive a dying boy who was still alive after 3:30pm.
Jamie Carragher should play a role in his last ever Merseyside Derby before he hangs up his boots at the end of the season to become a pundit on Sky Sports.
The veteran Liverpool defender will be just one of the story lines today. Another one will be the mosaic that the Liverpool supporters in the Kop will lift up before the match kicks off to thank Everton supporters for their support regarding the Hillsborough Disaster.
Liverpool have confirmed they will hold a minute's silence before Sunday's game against West Ham as a mark of respect for the 96 people who died in the Hillsborough disaster. The Anfield clash with the Hammers is the final home game before the 24th anniversary of the tragedy, which will be the first since the Hillsborough Independent Review published its findings.
With Liverpool in town on Sunday for the FA Cup third round, Mansfield have paid a small tribute to the victims of the Hillsborough disaster by putting the names of the 96 people who died on that tragic day on 96 seats between the home and away fans that will be purposefully left unused during today's game at Field Mill.
Lord Chief Justice orders new inquests into the Hillsborough disaster - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Fresh inquests have been ordered into the deaths of the 96 fans who tragically died during the Hillsborough disaster of 1989.
An application by the Attorney General led to the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, the Lord Judge, has prompted the new inquests after a report suggested that 41 of the 96 fans who died could have been saved.
In an attempt to raise money for the families of the Hillsborough disaster victims and their pursuit of justice, 96 fans got tattooed at a shop in Liverpool. Only one man was brave enough to let Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel, who had never tattooed anything in his life prior to this, do the tattooing.
Age-old rivals Liverpool and Manchester United go head-to-head on Super Sunday at Anfield, with both sides having much to prove. The hosts are looking to assert themselves under new boss Brendan Rodgers, whilst the visitors are eager to win back their Premier League title. With revelations over the Hillsborough disaster and a renewal of the race row between Patrice Evra and Luis Suarez in the thoughts ahead of the game, this is set to be an explosive encounter.
Kenny Dalglish will attend Liverpool's match against Manchester United on Sunday to show his support for the victims of the Hillsborough disaster. It will be his first visit to Anfield since his second spell as manager ended with his sacking in May. Dalglish was Liverpool's boss at the time of the 1989 tragedy, in which 96 fans died, and he played a huge part in the club's response, attending dozens of funerals, while also continuing to be a vocal supporter of the campaign for truth and justice.

As I thought to myself last night, it really was a lovely touch.
The last twenty-four hours or so have been rapidly evolving series of watershed moments for the perception of the Hillsborough disaster of 1989.

It took more than twenty-three years but the truth finally became public about the Hillsborough disaster today, and its capacity to shock remains as undiminished as ever. The families of those who died, who have fought tooth and nail for the full story to be made public, finally realised their wish today with the release of 450,000 new documents relating to the events of the fifteenth of April 1989, and for many individuals who felt that they might have washed their hand of all of this today will be a rightly uncomfortable day.
Prime minister David Cameron has apologised to the families of the 96 Liverpool fans who died in the Hillsborough disaster and at last given official confirmation that Reds supporters did not cause the deaths.

Lord Justice Goldring has today been appointed as the coroner to oversee the new inquests into the Hillsborough disaster.

The publication of the Hillsborough Independent Panel report into the tragedy in September laid bare the truth of what happened on that day and prompted an apology to the families by Prime Minister David Cameron.
We live in tumultuous times. It has frequently felt over the last few days, weeks and months as if the edifices of twentieth century Britain are starting to be dismantled, and football is not free from the times being a-changing. When the independent panel released its findings into the Hillsborough disaster of 1989, it felt like a watershed moment.
