The BBC has released two clips featuring Matt Smith talking about his role in the new BBC One drama Bert and Dickie.
Smith plays Bertram Bushnell in the drama about two rowers who were thrown together just five weeks before the final of the 1948 Olympics, the last games to be held in London. Their personal battle reflects a much greater struggle as London prepares to host the post war Games in a London that is half-destroyed.
The UK transmission date has not been confirmed, but the drama is expected to be shown shortly before the start of the 2012 games towards the end of July. BBC America has confirmed it will show the drama on Wednesday 25 July at 8/7C
