The documentary also explores the creative process behind the game, the culture in which innovation thrived, and the team from countryside England whose ambition, innovation and ingenuity, resulted in countless hours of joy for players around the world. Told by academics, journalists, celebrities and the game's designers, GoldenEra reconnects fans with this one-of-a-kind game.
