Written by William Ivory, Bert and Dickie is the uplifting story of Bert Bushnell (Matt Smith) and Dickie Burnell (Sam Hoare), who were thrown together just five weeks before the final of the 1948 London Olympics and rose above distinctions of birth and class to become Olympic gold medallists.

The cast also includes James Frain as Jack Beresford, Douglas Hodge as John Bushnell and Geoffrey Palmer as Charles Burnell.

Bert and Dickie will air on Wednesday 25th July on BBC One.
