Gods of Tennis

Mindhouse Productions, BBC Studios


- Sports Documentary

At the heart of this three-part series was its legendary cast, talking about their lives in surprising, revealing and often humorous ways. These were tennis superstars interviewed like never before, putting a new spin on classic sporting stories. The series also explored the cultural and political backdrop throughout this time period - with civil rights, female equality, the Cold War and LGBTQ+ issues being thrust into the public consciousness by these ground-breaking sporting heroes. These stories are weaved throughout the episodes and contextualised by famous fans and expert pundits, giving added meaning to the victories playing out on centre court. Nostalgic, exciting and incredibly moving, Gods Of Tennis has been a commercial and critical hit, standing out as one-of-its-kind amongst a sea of retrospective sports documentaries, produced by an exceptionally creative and talented team.
