Watch the documentary film

The World's Oldest Boat Race: Doggett's Coat and Badge is a documentary film focusing on the history of this hugely prestigious yet little known race, and its significance to the families and river community who have been taking part in it since 1715. It follows last year's competitors in the dramatic lead up to and aftermath of the 2018 race.

Filmed and edited by Chocolate Films and produced and commissioned by the Thames Festival Trust
