How to watch the 2021 Lions documentary Two Sides

A year has passed since the 2021 British & Irish Lions traveled to South Africa for a tour like no other and now you can see what happened behind the scenes.

The Covid pandemic has had a huge impact on the tour with teams operating in bubbles, no fans allowed into stadiums and matches played in just three cities in South Africa. How did it go for the players and coaches involved?

A new three-part documentary titled Two sides will provide insight and, unlike previous documentaries about the British and Irish Lions, flying footage was captured from the camps of the tourists and their rivals, the Springboks.

The Boks eventually recovered from losing the first Test 22-17 to win the next two (27-9 and 19-16) to triumph in the series, and the documentary series is set to highlight the drama on both and out of the field.

β€œBritish and Irish Lions and documentaries are inextricably linked,” said British and Irish Lions chief executive Ben Calveley. β€œGo back to 1997 with the unforgettable Living with Lionsthe Lions produced a documentary capturing hidden moments from each subsequent tour.

β€œThis particular documentary shows how both parties rose to the unprecedented challenge of staging a major sporting event during a global pandemic.”
