Bert and Dickie defied all odds at the 1948 Olympics to win gold in the double sculls. The powerful and uplifting story of how two men captured Olympic Gold and embodied the battling spirit of the 1948 London games. The film follows the compelling journey to the Olympic final of an unlikely pairing of competitors, boatbuilder’s son Bert Bushnell and Eton and Oxford-educated Richard ‘Dickie’ Burnell. Thrown together as double sculling partners just six weeks before the games, they had to confront and overcome vast differences in their personal and professional lives, as well as push themselves to their physical and emotional limits.
