From the formation of the team, to training camp, to the early struggles, to the exhibition contests in Sweden, to the behind-the-scenes intrigue in Moscow, to Paul Henderson's winning goal - the 1972 Canada-Russia 8-game Summit Series was the ultimate cold-war sporting drama! Now, for the first time, the entire story is told in this brilliant four-hour docudrama, originally aired to critical acclaim and ratings success on CBC Television in Canada, April 9-10, 2006.
Shot in a fluid documentary style that captures the era and the drama to perfection, CANADA RUSSIA '72 lets you re-live the ups and downs, and the ultimate moment of determination and pride, from the behind-the-scenes vantage point you've never seen before. Punctuated by some of the greatest Canadian rock-and-roll songs of the era (from The Guess Who, Crowbar, Lighthouse, Leonard Cohen, The Five Man Electrical Band, The Poppy Family, The Band, and more), this is a trip back in time you'll never forget!
