Doping for Gold – PBS Secrets of the Dead

Doping for Gold

In 2008 the PBS show “Secrets Of The Dead” highlighted the East German doping scheme of the 1970s in an episode titled, “Doping for Gold.” The information presented in the episode was largely based on research conducted by Sidewinder Films producer, Dr. Steven Ungerleider. His book, Faust’s Gold: Inside the East German Doping Machine, takes readers deep into the world of East Germany where athletes were subjected to unwanted medications and experiments — all in the name of Olympic success.
