On 6 May 1954, Roger Bannister became the first human to run a mile in under four minutes. Even now, more people have reached the top of Everest than have matched his achievement. Sir Roger looks back at his early life, how his family endured World War Two, and his arrival at the University of Oxford, before discussing one of athletics’ great moments. Seb Coe, Steve Cram and David Moorcroft are among the giants of middle-distance running paying tribute.
