The ABC Commercial feature documentary, Stop at Nothing: The Lance Armstrong Story, has been sold to BBC UK and will be broadcast on July 6 in the BBC Four Storyville documentary strand.
“This is a formidable piece of investigative journalism that gets to the darkest places in contemporary world sport and money. Armstrong ruled this world without scruple and by inspiring fear. I loved the film”, said Nick Fraser, Commissioning Editor, Storyville.
“With the Tour de France starting in the UK this year, we hope that UK cycling fans enjoy this fascinating exploration of the man whose fame and success was centred around this iconic sporting event – which is now associated with his dramatic fall from grace,” said Sharon Ramsay-Luck, Head of Sales and Business Development, ABC Commercial.
The film recently screened in the official selection of the 2014 Sheffield Doc/Fest and London’s East End Film Festival. It had a theatrical screening in London on June 22 and another one is scheduled for July 3, with Picturehouse Cinemas in the UK.
