New rugby doccie to show all the drama during British & Irish Lions tour

The long awaited new documentary about last year’s drama filled British & Irish Lions tour to South Africa is sure to have rugby fans, and sport fans in general, glued this week end. 

Two sides

“Two Sides” brings the spectacle on the field and the theatre behind the scenes while the story is told through the eyes of both the Springboks and the British & Irish Lions camps. 

Covid-19, the Rassie Erasmus controversy and the impact of the July unrest all form part of this tale of two sides.

Gerda de Sousa spoke to independent entertainment reporter, Tinashe Venge, who says this is another local production that is sure to give us goosebumps.

Two Sides

“Two Sides” is a three-part series that showcases the struggles and triumphs during the longest standing test tour in rugby history.

The first episode will be aired on DStv on 15 May, while it will also be streamed on Showmax.

It is tipped to follow in the success of “Chasing the Sun”, that took South Africans – and the world – behind the scenes when the Springboks won the 2019 Rugby World Cup. 

The Real Housewives of Durban

Sticking to all things real – expectations are high for this week’s part two of the reunion of “Real Housewives of Durban” on Showmax.

This group of well-heeled women succeeded in trending on social media after every episode, and their reunion was no different, causing a stir amongst the fans and viewers.

This week’s reunion episode brings to an end this series, which has already risen to the top as one of the most successful ones in the franchise.

silverton siege

There is no shortage of local drama on streaming platforms.

On Netflix, “Silverton Siege” is still one of the most popular movies to watch since it was released last month.

It’s based on true events when freedom fighters stormed into a Pretoria bank in 1980 and demanded that Nelson Mandela be released from prison.

The characters in the film are fictional, but the production has been lauded for its true setting of the 80s, from the vehicles and the clothing to the operation of the Apartheid police.
