This documentar­y chronicles the global shutdown of sport in

2020, as athletes and sporting stars are interviewe­d about the effects on their lives.

“I miss the fans,” says OKC Thunder basketball star Chris Paul, above. “I miss travelling. I miss my team-mates. I even miss the fans being against you. I miss going out onto the court. I miss that energy.”

An American documentar­y, this focuses on the day the National Basketball Associatio­n temporaril­y suspended its season after Utah Jazz player, Rudy Gobert, tested positive for Covid shortly before a big game.

The film looks at the astonishin­g impact on sport, while also touching on the Black Lives Matter movement and the impact of Covid on black people.

Location is key, they’ve been saying it for two decades and 35 series. But still, every house-hunter struggles with the decision.

In this episode, Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer go global to help a couple with an internatio­nal move.

Phil is with Zoe and Jason, who are returning to their native Edinburgh after a decade living and working in Hong Kong.

Keen to find a place close to their children’s school, they’re finding that their whopping £950,000 can still only buy them a flat around their beloved Stockbridg­e.

Meanwhile, Kirstie (below) is with Fife-born Stephanie and her husband Tana who grew up in Lisbon.

Stephanie wants a countrysid­e feel, whereas Tana wants the city vibe.
