Product Description

Re-live the incredible action, drama and excitement, both on and off the field, of the British and Irish Lions Tour to Australia 2013, triumphing in emphatic fashion to secure the first Lions Test series victory since the heroes of 97 and their first on Australian soil for 24 years.

Four long years ago it was about pride - the pride that took the Lions close to glorious triumph in South Africa, but it wasn t to be and caused agony for the players, the squad, the management and of course, the army of loyal and dedicated fans.

In 2013, Australia, it fell upon the shoulders of one of the youngest Lions squads in living memory to restore the honour of the British & Irish Lions - a win down under was 24 years in the waiting.

This incredible box set contains highlights from every game in Australia, each gripping Test match in full and Lions Raw - the epic, behind-the-scenes story that captured every moment of our crusaders journey, from pre-tour training camps to the emphatic demolition of the Wallabies in the 3rd Test Sydney. This is the journey of the 2013 Lions - open, honest, impassioned and brutally candid. Now it is time to see what really happened behind the scenes under incredible circumstances - the personalities, the drama, the lows, the disappointments and the incredible highs. With unrestricted access to every meeting and training session the cameras also captured the passion and intensity of the dressing room before and after the matches, with some colourful half time exchanges and captured the pressure, up close, with the management in the coaches boxes.

From the crushing lows of injury and defeat to the highest highs of victory, this documentary delivers what no other Lions DVD has for 16 years - a winning series to savour.

With over 10 hours of action this is the amazing story of one of the greatest Lions Tours in recent history and a must for every Rugby fan.

Format:Blu-ray
Amazon is collating the reviews for 3 separate products (6 if you include BluRay variants) here and leading to considerable confusion. As I understand it there are 3 distinct products all titled The British and Irish Lions Tour to Australia 2013 but with a suffix in brackets

1. (Official Film) - Highlights of the first two tests and then the final test in full - 2 DVD discs out on Aug 5th
2. (Test Series Box Set) - All tests in full and highlights of the tour matches - 4 discs out on Nov 11th
3. (Lions Raw) - behind the scenes film - hopefully similar to the 1997 classic Living With Lions - 2 discs out Oct 28th

The producers haven't helped with the ambiguous title "Official Film" for the first one and the very similar packaging and names for the three products, at least as they appear on Amazon/

So, to be clear, this review is for title 1 above, which is a very plain-vanilla recording of highlights of the first two tests and the third test in full. As another reviewer said, many of us will have more than that stored on out Sky+ boxes. However, if you perhaps didn't have Sky and watched the games in the pub, or if you are running out of space on your Sky box by filling it with cricket then this may be a good purchase! It is cheap and it is out now (August 2013). Just don't buy it expecting it to be something it isn't.

If, like me, you are waiting for the behind the scenes film, you'll need to wait for October 28th and "The British and Irish Lions Tour to Australia 2013 (Lions Raw)."

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Stuart Barnes hasn't wrecked this... 26 Oct 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I need to start this by correcting the first reviewers guess at what is included. This does have it all - Lions Raw, pre test match highlights, and each test in full, plus loads of extras.

Also, like the second reviewer, i too received my copy on 25th! Fantastic! Watched the whole Lions Raw BD straight away - my long suffering 'rugby widow' wife even enjoyed it. Cheers for that Amazon :)

I am going to split this review into positives and negatives, and invariably compare it to the masterpiece that is 'Living with the Lions' (LWTL). Also, at the time of writing, i have only watched Raw, the extras and the highlights up the the game against the Queensland Reds.

I'm going to start with the negatives:

1) The game coverage is provided directly by Sky, so you have to put up with the serious amount of utter drivel that freely spews forth from Stuart 'Fatty' Barnes gob! Christ, i wish he would sod off and stick to what he knows best - eating pies. This by far the worst aspect of the blu ray. Of course, there is very little of the Muppet in the Lions Raw content, but as you start to watch the match coverage, the whining Gwenter starts to get into his coverage ruining stride.

2) The Lions Raw documentary just isn't as 'warts and all' as LWTL. The bits that made LTWL stand out for me were the frank and brutal discussions by the management team of the players performances, and subsequent team selection. Ian McGeechan stating that 'Woody is hiding' when the Irish talisman is spotted cowering behind a teammate isn't something you will see in this, although the great man does make a 'guest' appearance.

3) You get the feeling that it's a very sanitised, PR documentary that isn't going to show anyone in a negative light.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
not being able to see the games televised I really enjoyed the video, the only disappointment was that there was no footage of the lions when they were not playing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clarence with the Lions 28 Nov 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The content of Raw with the Lions is nowhere near as insightful or revealing as the Living With The Lions, but it still provides interesting behind the scenes footage of the tour as it unfolds. The three full tests were a joy to watch, having only managed to see the first one live (in a pub) and in full, and the third test will live on for many years in the memory banks.
There are a couple of problems with the content:
1. During the match footage, the replays tend to blur and judder slightly, giving a double vision effect. This may have happened during the match overage (although I do not remember this) or may be due to the transfer, but in the digital, Blu-ray format this is unacceptable.
2. The test match footage appears to be directly lifted from Sky. People generally watch Sky coverage of sport due to a lack of options rather than preference. This is especially so for international rugby as you get the bonus of having to listen to Stuart Barnes drone out a series of random opinions and his deep love for Will Genia. The ideal option is to watch the Sky footage without any sound and tune into a radio commentary if possible.
The Barnes commentary and much more sanitised behind the scenes coverage mean only four stars, but it's still a cracking reminder of another epic tour.
