Synopsis

With London 2012 on the horizon, Chariots of Fire tells the story of British success at a much older Olympics - the Paris Games of 1924. This rousing film is based on the mixed fortunes of two ambitious runners - Eric Liddell, a Christian missionary from Scotland who refused to run on Sundays, and Harold Abrahams, a Jewish athlete battling anti-Semitism. The struggles and triumphs of these very different but equally talented men make this one of movie history's best-loved sports films.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
