‘We like to think that we started this whole trend of documentaries given the wonderful Living With The Lions back in 1997,’ said Calveley.

‘So we’re really interested in putting together a documentary. What we’re really excited about this time round compared to previous tours is that there is the potential to tell the story from both camps.

‘We have a joint venture with the South African Rugby Union, (so) you can tell the story not just from the Lions point of view, but from the Springboks point of view. I don’t think we’ve ever seen that in any sports documentaries of late so we’re really excited.’
