The Last Stone

BBC Scotland (1 x 60mins)

Before skip Rhona Martin and her teammates took to the ice at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, curling was a quirky minority sport to the vast majority of Scots and virtually unknown to the rest of the UK.  By the time Martin prepared to play her last stone, six million British television viewers sat glued to their screens past midnight.    

This celebratory film marks the 20th anniversary of a sporting battle against the odds - when a team of ‘ordinary yet extraordinary’ women changed the image of women in sport and made sporting history…and it all came down to The Last Stone.
