For the first time ever in New Zealand, the Lions were accompanied by a film crew, recording every detail of an incredible six week adventure, from the moment they left the UK to the last kick of the third and final test in Auckland. Only once in rugby history, had the British and Irish Lions conquered the mighty All Blacks on New Zealand soil. The task was a massive one and this programme reveals the passion and the pride of the touring party as they battled to achieve an almost impossible dream. Off the field they planned, trained and worked as a truly professional unit. On the field the Lions were confronted with an awesome challenge and some of the most physical and highly-skilled performers in the Southern Hemisphere.
