The Rover (1949)

History

Alf Tupper was a lad from a working-class background who lived in post-war Britain, where he had a variety of jobs including welder, plumber and millwright, all in the industrial town of Greystone. He was also, however, a champion runner, despite his bizarre training regime which seemed to consist of getting as little sleep as possible and living on fish and chips. A perpetual underdog, Alf was looked down on by the Amateur Athletic Association because of his working-class background, but would always be willing to fight for the rights of people in need, even if it meant nearly being late for a race meeting.
