THE DAY SPORTS STOOD STILL LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Sky Documentaries/Now TV, 9pm Channel 4, 8pm
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.
