‘The Complete Ali’ is a journey into the life of this heavyweight champion, the conscientious objector and the hero bravely confronting Parkinson’s disease. The programme also bears witness to the life of Ali through the eyes of people who were closest to Ali, whose lives were touched by him and who, in turn, were inspired to take bold action of their own.
