I Want to Run - The Case of Dieter Baumann


Director Diethard Klante

Gunda Borgeest conducted the research for the TV movie which premiered August 4th, 2004 in ARD, Germany.

The news broke in autumn of 1999: The German Dieter Baumann, one of the world's top middle and long distance runners, had been tested positively in a routine doping check. He of all - who had been most outspoken against doping! Was Baumann victim of a scheme or a fraudster, is he guilty or innocent? These are the questions followed by the film, showing Baumann's desperate fight for right and rehabilitation, without, however, being able to conclusively solve the case .
