Acclaimed Motion Picture "Chariots of Fire" To Air Thanksgiving Day at 9:00 P.M. EST / 11:00 P.M. PST on TBN
Nov 19, 2007 (Los Angeles) -- Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) has announced that the critically acclaimed motion picture, "Chariot’s of Fire,” will broadcast on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday November 22 at 9pm EST / 11pm PST. TBN will air the award-winning film with no commercial interruptions.
"Chariots of Fire” relates in flashback to the true story of two young British sprinters competing for fame in the 1924 Olympics.
Eric, a devout Scottish missionary, runs because he knows it will please God. Harold, the son of a wealthy Jew, runs to prove his place in Cambridge society.
In a warm-up 100-meter race, Eric defeats Harold. Harold has hired a professional trainer to prepare him for the race.
Eric, whose qualifying heat is set for a Sunday, refuses to run due to his Christian convictions that that particular day is the Lord’s Day — a holy day. Naturally the Olympic committee exerts all kinds of pressure on him to change his mind.
A compromise is reached when a nobleman allows Eric to compete in his 400-meter slot.
With that, Eric and Harold both win their respective races and go on to achieve fame respectively as missionary and businessman/athlete advocate.
