Feeling that Olympic fever? Tune in tomorrow, Tuesday, August 2nd at 9pm on PBS, for the premiere of “The Boys of ’36″! Watch the amazing story of nine working-class young men from the University of Washington who took the rowing world and America by storm when they captured the gold medal at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin.
We are thrilled and honoured that the film has been shortlisted for the highly prestigious Grierson Awards in the Best Newcomer Documentary category! And our thanks go out to all The Grierson Trust members who watched and voted for the film. John Grierson, a pioneer of non-fiction filmmaking, is credited with coining the term “documentary” in a 1926 review, so to be affiliated with such a legacy represents tremendous recognition.
