What a brilliant idea ESPN has a couple of years ago to do 30 documentaries for their 30th anniversary. Fortunately the documentaries have been a huge hit, and they’ve done more than 30.
Some of my favorites:
The 16th Man- about Mandela and South Africa
Once Brothers- basketball, Croatia
Brothers in Exile- baseball, Cuba
Ghosts of Ole Miss- about integration, James Meredith, football
Jordan Rides the Bus
Delaney- just, Wow.
Less of an impression but still enjoyed:
Without Bias- Len Bias, basketball. I remember being shocked when he died.
The Best There Never Was
Slaying the Badger- Cycling, Tour de France, Greg Le Monde
Kid Danny– about the boy who pitched in the World Series who turned out to be too old
Of the Father, about Jackie Robinson’s Son
Need to Watch: OJ: Made in American
