Boys of '36 Airs Tuesday, August 2nd!
Mark your calendars! Next week PBS will be airing "The Boys of '36"! Based on Daniel James Brown's "The Boys in the Boat", the PBS documentary is about University of Washington rowers who, against odds in the challenging times of the Great Depression, beat east coast teams to qualify for the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin where they beat elite German rowers. A perfect primer for the Rio Olympics!
The Boys of '36 premieres August 2 at 9/8c on PBS American Experience. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/films/boys36/
