Building The World Cup went behind the scenes of one of Brazil’s biggest engineering projects: the creation of three state-of-the-art football stadiums capable of hosting international soccer at the highest level. A complex refurbishment of Rio de Janeiro’s iconic Maracanã Stadium – the site of the country’s last World Cup defeat on home turf – the high-tech Corinthians Arena in São-Paulo: a project so cutting edge much of its advanced technology hadn’t even been tested at international level, and the vastly expensive vanity project that was the Amazônia Arena in the heart of the Brazilian rainforest. All three stadiums were different – architecturally and engineering-wise. But all three shared the same problems – tight schedules, sky-rocketing budgets, unpredictable weather conditions and mass, country-wide protests. The 2014 World Cup loomed and the eyes of the world were on Brazil, could they deliver on time and on budget?
How do you define a good punch? By what it means. And what that (punch) meant was the whole George Groves saga, the way people will look back at it in the years to come, that was the right hand that finished the job. It was the best punch I've thrown in my life. Carl Froch
Saturday 31 May 2014. Wembley Stadium. 80,000 people, plus millions more watching around the world, have just witnessed one of the greatest knock-out punches in the history of British boxing. A brutal right hand from Carl Froch has settled his bitter rivalry with George Groves in devastating fashion, answering his critics in the style of a true champion following a controversial victory in Manchester six months earlier. On that occasion Groves became the first man to send Froch to the canvas, as the challenger from Hammersmith followed up his pre-fight talk with a performance that caught the WBA and IBF super-middleweight champion cold. It took a controversial ninth-round stoppage from referee Howard Foster to ensure Froch held on to his titles, but as Groves left Manchester to deafening cheers after arriving to a chorus of boos, it was clear that the boxing world wanted a rematch.
Featuring Froch v Groves Parts I and II, plus bonus features and exclusive interviews, this is the definitive look back at the biggest night in the history of British boxing.

The All Blacks came into the match at Twickenham unbeaten in 20 games. Yet, in an astonishing display, it was the men in white who shocked the rugby world and in a near-faultless performance they went on to dominate New Zealand. England took a 12-0 half-time lead courtesy of three penalties and a drop goal from the boot of Owen Farrell. Another penalty after the break made it 15-0 but then the momentum swung wildly in sixteen minutes of madness! The All Blacks sprung into life and with two converted tries by Julian Savea and Kieran Read reduced the deficit to 15-14. Normal business resumed? Not a bit of it! Manu Tuilagi set up Brad Barritt for the first try before powering away from Dan Carter and Richie McCaw to set up Chris Ashton for England's second. It was Tuilagi himself who scored the third on the hour completing a devastating period of play which saw England clear at 32-14. Two more penalties by debutant Freddie Burns, replacement for Farrell, took England's advantage to 38-14 and although Savea's second converted try took the score to 38-21, the result was beyond doubt.
Six matches are featured:
1990 vs India, Englands first innings total of 653 for 4 declared featured an amazing score of 333 from Graham Gooch as well as centuries from Allan Lamb and Robin Smith. The Indians were restricted to 454 with Angus Fraser picking up 5 wickets before England added a further 272 for 4, Gooch scoring a pacey 123 off 113 balls, to set India a target of 472 to win. They could only manage 224 giving England victory by an impressive 247 runs.
1994 vs South Africa A classic game of cricket. South Africa led England by 28 runs after the first innings before Devon Malcolm, fresh
from being hit on the head whilst batting at number 11, went on the rampage! His 9 for 57 destroyed the South Africans and left England needing 204 to win and square the series, a target they made losing just two wickets.
1995 vs West Indies. A game that England had to win to square the series and a game that looked like drifting away with West Indies at 98 for 1 in the final innings chasing 296 to win. Enter debutante Dominic Cork who came on to devastating effect with a breathtaking 7 for 43 to win England the match.
1995 vs South Africa, An epic game of cricket. Coming into the 5th day England stood at 167 for 4, still 312 runs behind South Africa. Victory was never an option so survival was all England could hope for and this seemed a long way off. However, an incredible performance by Michael Atherton, who scored 185 not out in 643 minutes, and Jack Russell, with 29 in 274 minutes, saved the match.
1998 vs South Africa. Coming into the match 0-1 down with two Tests remaining, this was a must-win for England. Hansie Cronje did the damage for South Africa top-scoring with 126 in the first innings and 67 in the second, with Angus Fraser claiming 5 for 60 and 5 for 62 in
response. England were left 247 to win and Allan Donald was in no mood for them to make it. But Atherton won the gladiatorial
battle with 98 not out and a quick-fire 45 from 34 balls by Alec Stewart saw England home.
1998 vs Australia. Having lost the last two Tests England badly needed a win. They opened with 270 with Alec Stewart scoring 107 having returned to his preferred opening slot before Darren Gough took 5 for 96 as Australia replied with 340. England added 244 in the second innings, with Stewart making 52, leaving Australia with an eminently reachable 175 to win the series. However Dean Headley roared in taking 6 for 60 and Australia collapsed from 130 for 3 to 162 all out giving England a sensational victory by 12 runs.
