Plot Synopsis

On May 6, 1954, Roger Bannister ran the first sub-four-minute mile in history -- a barrier previously considered insurmountable. The 25-year-old native of Harrow, England, completed the distance in 3:59.4. At the end of the year, Bannister retired from running to pursue his medical studies full-time, becoming a neurologist. He became the first Chairman of the British Sports Council and was knighted for these services in 1975.
