Jesse Owens
£8.99  

On August 3 1936 when Jesse Owens the 22-year-old son of a sharecropper entered the Olympic Stadium in Berlin he was barely able to control his anger in the face of Nazi racism. But instead of letting himself be distracted the young athlete channeled his raw emotions into one of the most remarkable achievements in athletic history: four gold medals in two days. Beginning in the poor Cleveland neighborhood where Owens grew up this remarkable programme details his early career; describes Adolf Hitlers outsized ambitions for the 1936 Olympics; explores the movement in Western democracies to boycott the event; and explains the pressures on Owens to attend. The film also reveals the unlikely relationship Owens struck up at the games with his German rival and explores why despite his success in Germany Owens struggled to find a place for himself in a United States that was still wrestling with its own deeply entrenched racism.
