Message from Bridget Cushen of British Masters:
Hi All. The long awaited Documentary from Selah Hennessy on the late Charles Eugster is scheduled for screening at 20.00 on BBC2 Thursday 24th, title The Pacemakers. She has been filming him and our other 80-plus sprinters for some time. I hope the Documentary does not disappoint. She has gone to a lot of personal expense. It should feature some of our other sprinters.
