Cut and pasted from the Radio Times:
Writer William Ivory’s unabashedly sentimental fact-based drama about plucky rowers Bert Bushnell and Dickie Burnell, who won gold in the double sculls rowing at the 1948 London Olympics.
Bert (Matt Smith) is a working-class young man who’s chippy and rude when he first meets his sculling partner, Dickie Burnell (Sam Hoare). Dickie is Eton and Oxford educated and a member of the Leander Club (the rowing equivalent of the MCC). But they soon bury their differences as they power through exhaustion to find glory.
