Olympic and World Cup gold makes the city shine in RTD’s Sochi documentaries
The Black Sea resort city of Sochi is Russia’s playground and in the past decade has hosted an Olympic Games and FIFA World Cup matches. To do this, the city was transformed. The build-up to the Olympic Games is documented in the Sochi 2014 series of films looking at the preparations to host the winter sports extravaganza. The World Cup Fever series pays a trip to Sochi to see progress in the redevelopment of the stadium for the football tournament. You can also get to see one of the craziest sporting events in Sochi when thousands ski mid-winter in bathing suits.
