A new documentary about the iconic 1967 NFL Championship Game at Lambeau Field, now known as the "Ice Bowl," premieres Thursday night.

The new NFL films production "The Timeline: The Ice Bowl" will be shown during a Packers Hall of Fame 50th anniversary celebration of the Ice Bowl tonight at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center in Ashwaubenon. 

The first broadcast of the documentary will be 8:00 p.m. on Friday on NFL Network. 

On that cold day five decades ago, the Packers bested the Cowboys on a Bart Starr quarterback sneak with 13 seconds remaining. 

Fans who watched the game still remember the thrilling finish. 

"It was unbelievable," said 81-year old Packer fan Al Collie. 

"It was a great game," added Dan Hulbert, of Milwaukee. 

Hulbert said he watched the Ice Bowl on TV when he was a child. 

Temperature was -13 degrees Fahrenheit at kickoff. 

"I felt it wasn't fair playing in those conditions," Hulbert said.
