This excellent series of documentar­ies continues with a close look at one of history’s most significan­t sporting upsets. In 1983, a practicall­y unknown team of Australian yachtsmen somehow managed to snatch the America’s Cup from the New York Yacht Club in a shock victory that ended the longest winning streak in sporting history, a whopping 132 years. It’s told as a satisfying underdog tale that features interviews with yachtsmen from both of the competing sides.
