The game of Rugby Union is in the public eye today more than at any time in its history. This incredible programme tracks the origins of the Northern Hemisphere's biggest domestic tournament, the Six Nations, from its humble beginnings at the end of the 19th Century, then the Four Nations, through to England's Grand Slam win of 2003, by then the Six Nations Championship after France's entry into the fray in 1910 and Italy's in 2000.

The programme takes in archive footage and stills from the early years of the competition with stars such as Poulton Palmer before the Great War and Wavell Wakefield in the 1920's before moving to Ireland's sole Grand Slam success in 1948 and Eric Evans famous England Grand Slam side of 1957.

The Welsh Dragons under Gareth Edwards ruled the 70's before Bill Beaumont's 1980 side bucked the trend with England's first Grand Slam since that of 1957.

France dominated the 80s winning the Grand Slam in 1981 and 1987, although Scotland weighed in with a Slam of their own in 1984.

Scotland also took the Grand Slam in 1990 with that epic victory over England at Murrayfield before England and Will Carling turned the early 90's into a procession with Slams in 1991, after an epic 21- 19 victory against France, 1992 and 1995.

It was England's failings that dominated the latter part of the 90's and start of the New Millennium, losing consecutive Grand Slam deciders against Wales (at Wembley in 1999, handing the Five Nations to Scotland) Scotland, Ireland and France. However they put this right in 2003 as Martin Johnson's England destroyed Ireland at Lansdowne Road to clinch their first Grand Slam since 1995.

Highlights of all the great moments are included, ably presented and voiced by Steve Rider. It is a programme to be watched again and again by rugby fans the length and breadth of the Six Nations.
