HBO's latest sports documentary, Battle for Tobacco Road: Duke vs. Carolina, debuts tonight at 9. (It will re-air multiple times and be available via On Demand starting tomorrow.) The program won't break any ground for most ACC fans, but HBO has interviews with most of the important figures in the rivalry, including Dean Smith, Mike Krzyzewski, Michael Jordan, James Worthy, Grant Hill and Christian Laettner, and lots of great footage. Former Duke star Art Heyman sounds just as feisty more than 40 years later recalling a brawl against Larry Brown's Tar Heels.
There's no appearance or mention of Dick Vitale, however.
