It was the sporting equivalent of conquering Everest: running a mile in under four minutes - a feat thought impossible. Then, in 1954, a thrilling global race broke out to breach that battier, with two supremely gifted athletes emerging as front-runners: England's Roger Bannister and Australia's John Landy.
Like the Oscar winning film Chariots of Fire, the thrilling mini-series THE FOUR MINUTE MILE grips the emotions as it tells the story of one of the greatest moments in sporting history. But this is not just the story of a single sporting achievement: it also marks the end of an era. Never again would men and women compete, not for glory or for gold, but for the sheer joy of being the best.
