Geordie spends his Highland childhood regretting he is so small – but after secretly taking a body-building correspondence course, his prowess as an athlete becomes astonishing.
When he displays a talent for hammer-throwing, he is selected to represent Great Britain in the 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne, Australia.
This wonderful low-key comedy was released in some markets as Wee Geordie.
