Successful sports stars often become role models. For years, cyclist Armstrong was a hero to millions of fans. His remarkable story of recovery from life-threatening cancer to become a seven-time Tour de France champion was inspirational, and his ‘Livestrong’ wristbands became a popular accessory around the world. Years later, despite insisting he was innocent throughout his trial, it was found that he’d been using illegal, performance-enhancing substances, and he was stripped of his titles. This documentary, featuring interviews with Armstrong both before and after he confessed, explains why and how such a lie was created and maintained for so long.
No war is ever without shocking stories, and that much is proved again in this tough but important documentary about the conflict in Afghanistan.
