TSN is the exclusive Canadian home to ESPN's critically acclaimed 30 FOR 30 film project - featuring some of Hollywood's finest filmmakers creating documentaries centered on the last 30 years in sports.

And the first film debuts on TSN on Friday at 8:30 pm et/5:30pm pt with Academy Award- winning filmmaker Barry Levinson's The Band That Wouldn't Die.

The emotional documentary explores the impact the relocation of the Baltimore Colts had on the team's devoted fans.

In late March of 1984, a moving company secretly packed up the Baltimore Colts' belongings and its fleet of vans snuck off in the darkness of the early morning. A city of deeply devoted fans was left in shock and disbelief.

What caused owner Robert Irsay to turn his back on a town that was as closely linked to its team as any in the NFL? Academy Award-winning filmmaker Barry Levinson, himself a long-standing Baltimore Colts fanatic, will probe that question in light of the changing relationship of sports to community.

Through the eyes of members of the Colts Marching Band, Levinson will illustrate how a fan base copes with losing the team that it loves.

Upcoming 30 For 30 features include:

SMALL POTATOES: WHO KILLED THE USFL? (Mike Tollin), Saturday, Nov. 14 at 7pm et/4pm et
