SuperSport to Roll Out Locally-Made Sports Documentaries

SuperSport and M-Net is set to roll out the first of several locally-made sports documentaries.

A three-part series, “Two Sides” tells the story of last year’s British & Irish Lions tour, with the story told through the eyes of both protagonists.

Made by the producers of “Chasing the Sun”, the series also features the environments some of the players emerged from with footage of friends and families from Maro Itoje, Pieter-Steph Du Toit, Liam Williams and others.

The film takes in numerous events, including the drama of the tour’s status in the build-up, the Covid outbreaks in both camps, the impact of civil unrest, and the tension of the down-to-the-wire finish.

“The film is a heartfelt celebration of the game’s longest-standing Test tour and the brotherhood that comes along with it,” said Marc Jury, Chief Executive of SuperSport. “In the midst of unprecedented challenges and hardship, it is a reminder of the values of the game we love so dearly. The film is a story of sacrifice, courage and a belief in the power of sport.”

Later in 2022, SuperSport will lift the lid on “Rassie”, which for the first time tells the full – and astonishing – story of Rassie Erasmus’ rise from the backwaters of the Eastern Cape to the top of the rugby world.

The first episode of “Two Sides” will be broadcast on DStv on 15 May (M-Net, 18h00; SuperSport 19h00).

The remaining episodes will broadcast on 22 and 29 May.
