One of the greatest sporting deceptions in history was revealed last year in the film, THE PROGRAM. The film about US cyclist Lance Armstrong was released for cinemas in 2015 and now comes out on Digital HD from February 8 and Blu-ray and DVD on February 15, courtesy of STUDIOCANAL. I have three DVD copies to giveaway
Inspired by the award-winning book, Seven Deadly Sins by David Walsh, and directed by the Academy Award nominated Stephen Frears, THE PROGRAM uncovers the true story of how one of sport’s biggest heroes was able to orchestrate a staggering web of lies, while still holding the public in the palm of his hand.
Actor Ben Foster (Lone Survivor, Kill Your Darlings) stars as Armstrong, who at the peak of his cycling career enjoyed the life of a sporting hero and also ran the most sophisticated doping program the sport has ever seen.
While the sporting world lay in thrall of his seemingly miraculous recovery form cancer and his subsequent Tour de France comeback, Sunday Times journalist David Walsh (played by actor Chris O’Dowd) remained unconvinced of Armstrong’s messiah-like return to form, and embarked on a relentless investigation to expose the man behind the myth…
THE PROGRAM hurtles along at a breakneck pace, offering an astonishing take on the meteoric rise and even greater fall of one of the most notorious sportsmen of modern times…
TH PROGRAM costs £24.99 on Blu-ray and £19.99 on DVD.
