The 1981 Oscar-winner gets the Cinema Nairn treatment on the opening night of the 2020 Olympics. Equally well known for its classic score by Vangelis as for the run on the beach at St Andrews.  Two underdog outsiders in the GB team: Eric Liddell (Ian Charleson)  a devout Christian who won't run on a Sunday and Harold Abrahams (Ben Cross) a Jewish runner who faces casual antisemitism at Cambridge University. Do you remember the infamous call to arms at the Oscar awards ceremony from the screenwriter Colin Welland? You can shout it out after the film!
