Bicycle is its name.

“BICYCLE”, the brainchild of BAFTA winning director Michael B Clifford and producer Pip Piper both keen cyclists asks the question why is cycling and the bicycle back in fashion? It tells the story of cycling in the land that invented the modern bicycle, it’s birth, decline and re birth from Victorian origins to today. The film weaves bicycle design, sport and transport through the retelling of some iconic stories and features interviews with notable contributors including Sir Dave Brailsford, Gary Fisher, Chris Boardman, Ned Boulting, Sir Chris Hoy, Tracy Moseley and Mike Burrows. “BICYCLE” is a humorous, lyrical and warm reflection on the bicycle and cycling and its place in the British national psyche.

Stop At Nothing: The Lance Armstrong Story – Sheff Feb 26

When: 19.00, Thursday 26th February 2015
Where: Sheffield Students Union
Tickets: £6 / £5 (NUS students)

You think you know this story? You don’t…

From the producers of Academy Award winning films, ONE DAY IN SEPTEMBER and SEARCHING FOR SUGARMAN, this documentary is an intimate but explosive portrait of the man behind the greatest fraud in sporting history. Lance Armstrong enriched himself by cheating his fans, his sport and the truth. But the former friends whose lives and careers he destroyed would prove to be his nemesis.

Including interviews with Frankie and Betsy Andreu, Greg and Kathy Lemond, David Walsh, Paul Kimmage, Tyler Hamilton, Emma O’Reilly and Steve Whisnant among others; and featuring a rich selection of archive, some previously unseen, from over seventy-five different sources.

At the film’s heart is a portrait of a man who will stop at nothing in pursuit of money, fame and success. It reveals just how Lance duped the world with his story of a miraculous recovery from cancer to become a sporting icon and a beacon of hope for cancer sufferers everywhere; how Lance’s cheating bullying and lying become more and more extreme as he attempted to crush his opponents on and off the bike; and how a few brave souls refused to bow to his indomitable will, resolutely fighting back, putting their own fate in the balance as they became outcasts, derided and humiliated until eventually their voices were heard. It charts how this small, close knit group of friends were pushed to the brink by a secret that corroded their bonds of friendship until they turned on each other in a desperate fight for the truth, destroying marriages, careers and lives.

In STOP AT NOTHING Lance’s friends and enemies speak candidly about the man at the centre of the greatest fraud in sporting history. A giant heist in which Lance, his backers and sponsors sought to steal one of the greatest sporting events in history and enrich themselves to the tune of hundreds of millions of pounds at the expense of fans, the sport and the truth.

Director: Alex Holmes

Duration: 97 mins
