Alan will bid farewell to football punditry with the BBC following the World Cup final between Argentina and Germany on Sunday evening.
The hour-long programme, fronted by Gary Lineker, looks at the career of the ex-Liverpool star, who made over 400 appearances between 1977 and 1991, during a glittering era that saw the club win eight league titles and three European Cups, among other honours.
Hansen was also a member of the team during the infamous disasters at Hillsborough in 1989 and the Heysel Stadium in Belgium during the 1985 European Cup final, both of which he talks about candidly, revealing the impact they have had on him personally.
After retiring as a player he went on to become one of the more respected TV analysts in the game, and was known for his passionate, forthright and intelligent views that led to him being referred to as the `King of the Pundits’ by his colleague Lineker, who is joined by the likes of Kenny Dalglish, Graeme Souness, Des Lynam, Gary Neville and Mark Lawrenson in offering their opinions on the Scot.
There are also contributions from Hansen’s wife Janet, as well as their two children Lucy and Adam.
The programme is on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10.35pm this evening and at 11.05pm on BBC One Scotland.
