    • Synopsis
    • ENGLAND v AUSTRALIA, World Cup Final, 2003. With two minutes of extra time left to win, Jonny Wilkinson goes for his trademark drop goal. This time, he’s shooting for a place in sporting history.

      Building Jerusalem combines scintillating match action and original interviews with key players – including Jonny Wilkinson, Martin Johnson, Sir Clive Woodward, Matt Dawson and Australia’s George Gregan and Peter Fitzsimons – with never-before-seen behind the scenes footage, and brings to life Clive Woodward’s extraordinary battle to drag English Rugby, kicking and scrumming through strikes and scandals, from amateur to professional; from international laughing stock to the champions of the world.

      "The story is hardly new… but thanks to Erskine it’s crisply told and unexpectedly compelling.” – Time Out
