All thirteen episodes from the first and second series of the BBC mockumentary comedy following the trials and tribulations of the team responsible for staging the 2012 London Olympic Games. Narrator David Tennant guides the audience through events as Head of Deliverance Ian Fletcher (Hugh Bonneville) and his support team, including PR operative Siobhan Sharpe (Jessica Hynes), Head of Sustainability Kay Hope (Amelia Bullmore) and straight-talking Yorkshire man Nick Jowett (Vincent Franklin), take charge of a £9 billion budget. In the first series, the team must somehow keep the event on track as they face confronting challenges including horse dung oriented protests, what on earth to do with the Taekwondo hall after the games and sports stars with a desire to help but absolutely no personality. In the second series, the team have to deal with a dispute over the Shared Belief Centre when both Algeria and France threaten to withdraw from the Olympics.
A fantastic series - highly enjoyable. Thoroughly recommendedPublished 16 days ago by Mr. S. J. Bradley
Got this as a present for my dad, as he enjoyed being a London 2012 volunteer. It was a good price, a great stocking filler, and was an easy watch over the Christmas holidays.Published 1 month ago by L
