Watched this last night and, although it is good, it's nowhere near up to the standards of Living with Lions.

There is a focus on a relatively small number of players, with plenty of tourists - and some of the coaching staff - barely getting any screen time. e.g. there's plenty of George North, but barely any JD2, there's loads of Andy Farrell but no Jenks. Maybe inevitable given time constraints, but it can feel a bit unbalanced at times.

In terms of behind the scenes stuff, there's plenty of stuff from the changing rooms and training sessions, but relatively little beyond that. My main gripe, however, is that there is nothing from selection meetings. There's a brief bit at the beginning of the squad selection, but absolutely nothing about selection on tour. The omission of O'Driscoll from the third test isn't really mentioned, apart from some footage from a press conference and a shot of O'Driscoll at the team announcement.

Personally I think the whole O' Driscoll thing was blown massively out of proportion - you'd think he had a god given right to a starting place to listen to some people - but given the attention it garnered it would have been interesting to have seen how much debate there was between the coaching team.

Still, it's a reasonably entertaining couple of hours, and well worth watching if you're a rugby fan.

Whitewash the Test series wasn't, but this documentary certainly is. O Driscoll omission for third test is glossed over almost completely. One of most controverstial selection decisions in the history of the Lions, but you'd never know that from watching this rubbish. If the film makers really had unrestricted access to every coaching meeting and training session on tour, it's truly remarkable that they did so little with it. We get one scene at the start, as the coaches are picking the squad to tour, sound is rubbish and it seems like they're talking for the cameras anyway, the real decisions have already been made, or will be made elsewhere, once the cameras are off. I understand we will never have another Living With Lions now we're fully in the professional era, but surely they can come up with better than this? To be fair there are a couple of laughs courtesy of Simon Zebo and Mike Phillips, but if you are a rugby fan you're better off just buying the DVD with the games, the behind the scenes stuff on this DVD is a huge let down. I've seen all the tour documentaries since '97 and this is hands down the worst, apart from the 2005 All Black debacle. Save your hard earned money and avoid this trash.

I managed to get an invite to a screening of this and I have to say it was absolutely superb. The production is nothing short of excellent.
A shorter version of this was screened on Sky, this DVD contains so much more! How on earth they managed to get permission to film so much behind the scene's is amazing,

I'm not even sure you need to be a Lion's fan to enjoy this!!

I watched the shortened version on the Sky the other night and it was awesome! it was a good laugh seeing what they all get up to but also really interesting to watch what goes on behind the scenes, especially the speeches they give each other. I'd recommend to any rugby fan, hardcore or casual.
