There is a great feature article in the Radio Times related to Chariots of Fire.

Cut and pasted from the Radio Times:

The Real Chariots of Fire: the daughters of two British Olympic heroes meet for the first time.
Harold Abrahams and Eric Liddell won gold at the 1924 Paris Olympics and became the subjects of the 1981 Oscar-winning film.

Unbeknown to a rapt Hampstead Theatre enjoying a stage version of Chariots of Fire last month, an even greater drama took place before curtain up. It was a historic meeting between the two daughters of the great Olympians Harold Abrahams and Eric Liddell, gold medallists at the 1924 Paris Olympics, on which the hit movie was based.

Follow the link to the feature article:

The digitally remastered Chariots of Fire is released in cinemas from 13 July.
