The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - FREE TV -

tele­movie Go­ing for Gold is the story of how two men beat the odds, cap­tur­ing Olympic Gold and em­body­ing the bat­tling spirit of the 1948 Lon­don games. In a Bri­tain strug­gling with af­ter-ef­fects of war, the film fol­lows the Olympics fi­nals path of boat­builder’s son Bert Bush­nell and Eton and Ox­ford-ed­u­cated Richard ‘‘Dickie’’ Bur­nell as dou­ble sculling part­ners, six weeks be­fore the Games. Matt Smith ( Doc­tor Who) stars.
