The Rewind Recommends: 3 Things To Watch/Listen To Today
By Sean Meehan

Cigarettes and Samba

... a Radio One documentary on the Republic of Ireland's farcical tour of South America in 1982

Although now the FAI are beacons of rational and sensical decisions regarding our national team, 1982 was a different time altogether. This Radio One documentary details Ireland's tour of South America in 1982, amidst a backdrop on the Falklands War, complete with run-ins with armed police and the reigning World Cup holders. You can listen to the full broadcast here.

Katie

... the award-winning documentary on the Irish boxer is on RTE One tonight at 9.35pm

This is a very sporting version of The Rewind recommends. Either way, the critically-acclaimed Katie is readily available on Netflix whenever people see fit to indulge in the life of one of Ireland's greatest sportspeople. However, tonight the documentary is on terrestrial television, so tune-in to get an in-depth look at Katie Taylor. Watch the trailer here:

The Blair Witch Project

... yesterday marked the 2oth anniversary of one of the most successful independent films of all-time

Get ready to scare the bejaysus out of yourself all over again. 20 years on, The Blair Witch Project is still a masterpiece in simplistic filmmaking. From a budget of $60,000, the film has made close to $250m since its release. This anniversary has caused a number of people on Twitter to admit that they thought the film was a documentary, and I still have my doubts to this day. Watch the trailer here:
