Olympic Drama Features Classic Round Eyewear

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

BBC One presented factual drama, Bert & Dickie, about Bert Bushnell and Richard Burnell and their quest for double sculls gold in the 1948 London Olympics. The emotional story has something for everyone including class conflict, relationships between fathers and sons, and the difficulties of implementing the games (which we now know plenty about!).  The period details are excellent including vintage round eyewear from the late 1940s.
