=======================================
Gold Fever was the BBC documentary which followed Steve Redgrave and his coxless four team in the years leading up to Sydney.

It chronicled how the four-time gold medal winner, long-time partner Matthew Pinsent plus James Cracknell and Tim Foster as the quartet built towards the millennium games.

All four members of the crew, plus super-sub Ed Coode, made entries into video diraries which recorded the highs and lows of their professional and personal lives.

For Redgrave that meeant a battle with diabetes, a condition he was disagnosed with during the period covered, as well as an addition to his family.

Foster had two major injuries, one of them self-inflicted after an accident with a window at a party and the other a career-threatening back problem.

His absence brought Coode into the boat for the 1999 season, and left him and Foster facing a selection dilemma handled by coach Jurgen Grobler - another key player in this drama.

Cracknell faced up to making decisions between his sport and his long-term girlfriend.

Meanwhile Pinsent came over as the rock on which the others depended - with little more dramatic than moving house taking place for him off the water.

It all added up to a fascinating soap opera with high class sport thrown in as a bonus, and has left anyone who viewed it in the UK even more determined to support the four at Sydney.

============================

I do not own this video, I simply downloaded all parts from the channel of oneworldfamily (http://www.youtube.com/user/oneworldf..., THANKS A LOT FOR UPLOADING THIS!!), put it together, tried to get rid of the black borders and reuploaded it.

When the rowers returned there was another documentary/episode named 'The Rowers Return', however I have yet to find it anywhere for sale or on the internet.
