Grand Slam '84

Grand Slam '84 looks back to one of Scotland's most remarkable sporting achievements on the rugby field, winning a Grand Slam in the Five Nations for the first time since 1925. The canny squad of players and head coach Jim Telfer, didn't waste time looking for the key to success, electing instead to simply smash down the door.

John Beattie narrates this epic tale of the season (himself a hero of the winning squad), paying tribute to the 100th match against the auld enemy, winning the triple crown in Dublin before the season concludes with a pulsating 'winner takes all' decider against the French at Murrayfield.

Thirty years on, and the passion from both players and supporters is infectious, harking back to a golden era of Scottish rugby.
