BBC America have announced that they will air Going for Gold – The ’48 Games, starring current Doctor Who Matt Smith, on Wednesday, July 25 as part of their London Olympics programming. Please note: the original press release from the BBC last year titled this ninety minute drama as Bert & Dickie (read HERE). A UK airdate has not been set as of yet. Details below from BBC America and click on the pic below for a bigger version:
Written by William Ivory (Made in Dagenham) and executive produced by Jessica Pope (Sense and Sensibility), the drama is an inspiring story of how two young British men, Bert Bushnell (Matt Smith) and Dickie Burnell (Sam Haore, Jane Eyre), were thrown together just weeks before the final of the 1948 London Olympics and rose above distinctions of birth and class to defy the odds and become gold medalists.
