Well, I don't want to do another 30 docs in 30 days anytime soon, but I do want to continue to post any sports documentaries that I watch. Both for my own records and because there might be a couple of you who would be interested in watching them.
These will not be the drawn out reviews I did in October. No chance. These will be short and to the point.
I watched this offering a couple days ago after renting it from the library on the weekend. Free is good.
This is a great behind-the-scenes documentary on the 1972 Summit Series between Canada and Russia. Done in 1992 and originally broadcast on CBC, this doc has a good selection of player interviews, archive footage and inside stories. As well, Kenneth Welsh's voiceover is really good.
While it doesn't go terribly in-depth with some of the happenings, it does paint a good picture of the events from (now) 40 years ago. A solid watch.
