Inside Sport - - GAME TIME -

If, like GT, you like sports for the story-telling more than the games, then ESPN’s 30 For 30 se­ries has likely be­come ap­point­ment view­ing. Orig­i­nally con­ceived as a col­lec­tion of doc­u­men­tary films to mark the net­work’s three-decade an­niver­sary, it has evolved into the gold stan­dard for sports docos, re­liv­ing or re­viv­ing mem­o­rable sto­ries while us­ing sports to ex­plore cul­tural or his­tor­i­cal mo­ments. ESPN Films Month (to Jul 31) will air a 30 For 30 film ev­ery day in July, giv­ing view­ers a chance to catch one they might have missed, or make a dis­cov­ery (in­deed, one of the best things about these films is learn­ing about a sports story that you knew noth­ing about). If gems such as The Two Es­co­bars, Hills­bor­ough, Broke or The Price Of Gold pop up on your pro­gram­ming guide, be sure to set your­self a re­minder.
