In 1997, the behind the scenes story of the British and Irish Lions Tour of
South Africa was captured on camera for the first time – the documentary ‘Living
with Lions’ is acclaimed as one of the greatest sports films ever made.
Now, 12 years on, the Lions are back in South Africa and so is the film crew, recording every minute of what is arguably the most demanding contest in all of sport - The Lions against the Springboks in their own backyard. With absolute access to all areas of the Lions squad ‘Living with the Pride’ is the most intimate and intense portrait of the life of a Lion.
From the Bagshot training camp to the magnificent final test victory in Johannesburg, Head Coach Ian McGeechan and his pride of Lions worked closely with the film crew to make an astonishing, compelling documentary. With access to every man, team, management and selection meeting; every training session as well as the passion, fury, joy and pain of the dressing room, it is uncompromising and riveting – the ultimate test of courage and character... no one has been this close before.
Sometimes hilarious but more often brutal, bruising and bloody – it’s exhilarating, emotional and often controversial and this is the real behind the scenes story of one of the most remarkable sports tours ever.
