THE EPIC story the Bri­tish & Ir­ish Lions 2017 Tour to New Zealand has been doc­u­mented in a be­hind the scenes film – LIONS UN­COV­ERED will be avail­able to own on DVD, Blu-ray and Dig­i­tal plat­forms on 13th Novem­ber 2017 from Spirit En­ter­tain­ment.

In­clud­ing over two hours of un­seen footage, the film tells the story of a team of ri­vals, the best of the best from Eng­land, Ire­land, Scot­land and Wales who came to­gether with a sin­gle pur­pose many billed “Mis­sion Im­pos­si­ble”.

Avail­able to pre-or­der now and on gen­eral sale on DVD, Blu-Ray and Down­load on Novem­ber 13, Un­cov­ered from STAMP Pro­duc­tions is the next chap­ter in the Lions saga fol­low­ing the 2013 Lions Raw tour and is a must watch for any sports fan.

Few out­side the squad gave them a chance against the mighty All Blacks, who had not been beaten at home since 2009 – a run of 47 matches and 2849 days.

Yet the strong­est steel is forged in the hottest fire and the Lions of 2017 showed their met­tle to draw the se­ries and do the iconic jer­sey proud.

Charting the Tour in graphic de­tail, this is the unique ac­count of how the Lions took on the most suc­cess­ful sports team in his­tory 10,000 miles from home, against all odds. Wit­ness the real life, be­hind the scenes jour­ney to the far side of the world where the Lions were roared on by more than 20,000 trav­el­ling pas­sion­ate fans.

Feel the ten­sion in the coaches’ box on match day as the Lions bounce back from the 1st Test de­feat at New Zealand’s Eden Park fortress to win the 2nd Test in Welling­ton be­fore the fi­nale back in Auck­land.

Watch the Lions re­ceive a for­mal chal­lenge from 500 Maori war­riors at the famed Wai­tangi Treaty Grounds, the birth­place of New Zealand, and hear them re­spond with songs from their home­lands.

De­ter­mined to live out the Lions val­ues on and off the field, the squad vis­ited schools, hos­pi­tals and com­mu­ni­ties ev­ery­where they went, and were made wel­come all over New Zealand.

With un­re­stricted ac­cess to every meet­ing and train­ing ses­sion, where play­ers wore mi­cro­phones for the first time, the team bus and even choir prac­tice, see and hear the play­ers as you have never be­fore.

Fea­tur­ing thrilling match footage from every one of the 10 games, this is one of the most ex­tra­or­di­nary sport­ing events of all time.
