Going For Gold – The ’48 Games
BBC Home Entertainment

Thrown together as double sculling partners just six weeks before the 1948 Summer Olympics, Bert Bushnell, a boatbuilder’s son, and Richard “Dickie” Burnell, the Oxford-educated son of an Olympic gold-medal winning champion rower, were an unlikely pair. Bert was strictly a single sculler, unused to working as a team, and Dickie was living in his father’s shadow – but with the help of legendary sculler Jack Beresford these two men from very different backgrounds triumphed against the odds, capturing Olympic Gold and embodying the battling spirit of the 1948 London games. The fact that the games took place at all was astonishing in itself: Britain was still struggling with the after effects of World War II, and the 1948 Games were the first in 12 years due to the war. Perhaps even more astonishing was that, with Dickie’s Olympic win, he followed his father Charles Burnell to victory and became one of the few father-son pairs to both win Olympic gold medals.


The Legend Of The Ditto Twins
Author: Jerry Douglas
Publishing House: Bruno Gmuender

The Legend of the Ditto Twins is an erotic tale about identical twin brothers: All their lives, Mark and Clark knew they were different. Knew they were special. Knew they would be bound together as long as they lived. Most of all, the twins knew that no one else must ever discover the secret games they played. It wasn’t until they reached puberty that they began to understand how they were destined to become legendary. Follow two young men on their journey from a modest dairy farm in America’s heartland to the glamorous world of Berlin’s physique models, from the wonderland of Prague’s adult film industry to the fast lane of New York’s glittering club life…and ultimately, all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States.
