    Great memories but absolutely heartbreaking footage of Axel and the kids.

  • Registered Users Posts: 14,948 ✭✭✭✭Beechwoodspark

    Well made, compelling documentary so far.

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,308 ✭✭✭John_Rambo

    That was excellent.

    Going up to hug my kids now.

    Show me the man who didn't shed a tear watching this and I shall show you a liar. This was television at it's finest.

    Try the Player tomorrow; it can take a day or two for them to be uploaded.

    Not available in the UK, but I can fill my boots with the Ray D'arcy show or Brendan O'Connor talking to Tubs!

    -EDIT- I contacted the Director who confirmed the Archive licences use was for Irish use only. Will have to wait until Xmas to catch it.

  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 18,014 Mod ✭✭✭✭CatFromHue

    Just checked and it says it's only available until 17th Nov.

    Usually the docs are up for much longer so that seems a bit short.

  • Registered Users Posts: 958 ✭✭✭ArmchairQB

    Enjoyed it very much and glad they didn't gloss over the rough time he got from so called supporters who were slating him and looking for him to be replaced before his tragic passing,family and friends saying hao hard it was for him at the time and how he fell out of love with rugby for a time over it. Well made programme that didn't shy away from the not so nice things that went on.

    A very balanced documentary, but a tough tough watch, I remember being so shocked watching the pre-match coverage from Paris the day he died and it filtered through, that I cried my eyes out for the first time in a long time.

    I believe they are planning to televise it again next week for those in that are without power and mightnt have the tech savvy for the RTE player.
