Carlton fans in the United Kingdom and the United States are about to get their Blues fix on a whole new level.
In 2016, the Carlton Football Club invited Gillette World Sport and multinational television channel Viceland, into its inner sanctum to explore Australia’s game.
A five-minute feature created by Gillette World Sport, and a 30-minute documentary produced by Viceland, are the products of the 2016 visits.
With the clips set to air over the coming days, the Blues will be the talk of the town – on the opposite side of the world.
The feature provides an insight into Australian Rules Football through a behind-the-scenes look at Carlton on the training track.

Throughout the clip, the Blues discuss the ins and outs of the game while also demonstrating key footy skills.
The documentary on the other hand, explores Carlton from another perspective as it delves into the Club’s historic rivalry with arch-enemy, Collingwood.
As part of Viceland’s ‘Rivals’ series, the documentary exposes viewers to the bad blood between the Blues and the Magpies with Carlton captain Marc Murphy, vice-captain Kade Simpson and Magpie turned Blue Dale Thomas, all prominent players within the 30 minutes.
Viewers can also look forward to being taken inside the family home of the Silvagnis, as the famous Carlton family gives a greater insight into their own history.
The Gillette World Sport feature will be broadcast in the UK on 15 March and in Australia on Monday 20 March (Channel 10), while the Viceland documentary is set to air in the US on Wednesday 15 March at 10:30pm and in Australia at a later date.
