Stop the Tour won best documentary at AIPS awards 2021, in a competitive international field. 

"“Stop the Tour”, a BT Sport Film by the director Louis Myles (UK), which in 2019 marked 50 years since a 19-year-old Peter Hain led anti-apartheid protests against the Springbok rugby tour of Britain and Ireland, tells the powerful story of how sport played a key role in the fight against apartheid in South Africa. Indeed, the country’s third rugby World Cup victory in Japan, inspired by the first black captain of the Springboks, could not have come at a better time. The landmark moment of Siya Kolisi lifting the Webb Ellis Cup, surrounded by a multi-racial squad, would never have been possible without the Stop the Seventy Tour demonstrations dating back to 1969, which did not only successfully disrupt the Springbok rugby tour but also forced the cancellation and banning of South African sport internationally for decades. The one hour 24-minute film, which brilliantly connects the struggle of the past and the triumph of the present, also demonstrates the symbiotic relationship between sport and society."
