While the history of the Buffalo Bills is well-documented, the complex story of the driving force behind the team is less known. The producers of "Ralph," which airs tonight at 8 on WNED-TV,  explore the unique background and understated business savvy of Ralph C. Wilson, Jr., the man who purchased the franchise in 1959 for $25,000. His leadership not only kept the team alive in an economically-depressed area, it also successfully built a franchise that would eventually sell for $1.4 billion.
