This may be my most misjudged post on this forum, ever, which is saying something, but here goes.
I watched this last night http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1727790/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
It's a film about the rise of the West Indies cricket team in the late 70's. It is one of those stories whereby if it was scripted as fiction you'd call it corny and unbelievable.
In the space of 12 months they went from getting stuffed by the Aussies (and racially abused and treat like second class citizens) to beating England in England and setting off on a 15 year unbeaten test match streak. Now whether you like Cricket or not, no sporting team has ever equalled that.
At the same time they were fighting racism and colonialism both abroad and at home.
As someone who was very young at the time this documentary is set it's frightening to see the level of vitriol aimed at these guys for the colour of their skin. It looks like it was almost acceptable. The England cricket captain at the time, Tony Greig was actually quoted as saying he would 'make them grovel'. Him being a South African didn't help matters.
The part of the story where they go back to Australia and take them apart, literally, is classic TV. Four men who could launch a cricket ball at you relentlessly at over 90mph is a very very scary thought.
Ace film, even if you're not that into the sport. 10 'owzats!' out of 10
