At 21 miles wide and very, very cold, the English Channel is regarded the world over as one of the ultimate swimming challenges.  Achieving such a goal can push both mind and body to their limits, and sometimes beyond.

 

Two Swimmers is the inspirational story of a young swimmer and his coach as they attempt to swim the Channel in the summer of 2005 and the dramatic events that follow.

 

Two Swimmers is dedicated to Mark Rickhuss, his family and all channel swimmers.

A Gift of Hope fund for donations to the British Heart Foundation has been established in Mark's name.

“Steve Sander’s remarkable Two Swimmers [is] a fascinating inspirational portrait of endurance and willpower, while the ending is as shocking as it is unexpected.”

Telegraph on Saturday

 

“Life-affirming…brought a lump to the throat and put many a mega-budget show to shame…with impressive understatement, Two Swimmers turned out not to be Tim’s story but a tribute to his coach Mark Rickhuss."

Metro

 

“Quality television…both inspiring and emotionally involving.”

The Observer

 

“Trainer Mark Rickhuss has been coaching Tim since school and it’s this relationship plus a tragic twist at the end, which makes this film so compelling.”

Radio Times

 

“An unpretentious, engaging documentary…A quietly devastating genuine human tragedy.”

Daily Telegraph

 

“[Two Swimmers] carries a certain hypnotic power and a sting in the tale more potent than any of the sea-water jellyfish with cameo roles.”

Time Out, London
