Dani, my sister, being in Ireland like yourself, can't use the iplayer either. It drives her mad.

Someone more technie than me might know more about it than I do, but isn't there something you can download that kids the iplayer etc into thinking your ip is from the UK? That's what Dani's issue is, the iplayer is picking up that her ip isn't British and it's blocking her.

I watched the documentary again this morning while having my breakfast. It was just as good the second time around.

I don't know whether this will work but try setting your browser to "new incognito window" in Google Chrome, private browsing in Safari or similar in any other browser you have.

Andy is geting into a habit of giving us top class Sunday tv viewing. Don't need any Sunday coming as I'll be in London for a wee tennis event in SW19  - so if he could resume this habit the following Sunday ....

Thought the documentary was ahem ace! So moving but funny and insightful as well.Just a totally decent, hard working, thoughtful guy with his feet planted firmly on the ground and a firm grasp of the true priorities in life. He deserves every success and happiness. And was very impressed by Sue Barker esp when discussing Dunblane, not pushing, being willing to let the question drop - even thinking about Andy answering that makes me well up. Loved the dogs - they are a great support act.

This lovely documentary showed the Andy many of us on MW already knew . It has taken so long for everyone else to realise just how special he is partly because of the BBC . How many times have we seen and heard bitchy remarks about Andy from the BBC Fed worshippers over the last few years as he has battled away to get to world number 2? The BBC have always had the power to make his life a lot easier and quite deliberately on many occasions chose not to do so fanning the horribly anti-Scottish (we just can't warm to him) sentiment of SW1. His father said on the documentary that Andy did not feel loved at Wimbledon and the BBC were a huge part of that. I suspect they found it difficult to understand how someone could be as brilliant at the sport as Andy and yet not be a drunken, arrogant , prat like many English (and Scottish) stars of cricket and football. We should all be so proud of him.

Wow, I just watched this, and I sent it to my friend who is a Tennis Journalist here in the States.  It is awesome, I think the tennis channel should air it as well.  In fact I may send the youtube to them.....thanks for posting it on the home page.

Just finished watching the youtube, thanks guys so much for sharing!  I didn't want it to end - like many of you he had me in tears a couple of times too.  How anybody could dislike him after watching that I do NOT know.  Just want to hug him myself!  Such a lovely guy.

Just caught up with this, BBc congrats on this wonderful doc on Andy, it was perfect and showed Andy for what he really is - an absolute gem of a guy!! Judy and Kim cane across fantastically well also, you just get the feeling Andy is so well-rounded because of the people in his life supporting him.

Right Andy let's go get that wimbledon title!! cmonandy

The funny thing is that I've just sat and watched the documentary again and still loved it. My sister phoned from Ireland this morning and due to having one sky box set for the UK, she saw part of the documentary. She was impressed by how Andy came across. We were laughing together about Andy Ireland having to use the ice bath!

I just got time to watch this incredible documentary now.

He is so natural. So geniune compared to lots of other posers and egoistic people. I dont know him personally, but I sure wish I did, it must be a great priviledge to be associated with him.

I felt most emotional when he choked up trying to talk about the Dunblane tradgedy. That goes really deep. He has given back pride to the town and Judy says what a fantastic place it is for families to bring up kids.

Seeing Andy interact with his dogs I can relate to his love animals. Kind and caring. Maggie and Rusty love him too- also very apparent.

Bless you Andy. You are one in a 100 000 000 000 000, truly you are.

finally watched it - pre Wimbledon version - last week.  Loved it needless to say and loved the way his friends talked about Andy as well as how he came across himself. One thing that struck me, that I'd not seen mentioned anywhere, was Ferguson saying he gets more emotionally involved in Andy's matches than he did in his own team's.  Don't feel quite so stupid getting so emotionally involved now!  Still got the post-Wimbledon version to watch.   yay
