The second half of a very long day. The Algerians issue a deadline of midnight for a solution to their demand for a Shared Belief Centre which faces Mecca, whilst the French are now threatening to pull out of the Games if a separate mosque is built. The team have to come up with an idea that will please everyone.

Filmed in a documentary style, Twenty Twelve deals with such hot topics as how to phase the traffic lights across London to get people from west to east; who to sell the Taekwondo hall to after the event; what to do when protesters leave large quantities of horse dung on the doorstep in protest at the siting of the equestrian events, and how to cope with sportsmen who want to help but are just too dull. From getting a bus-load of non-English speaking Brazilians from A to B, who to appoint to run the Cultural Olympiad and what to do when the much-vaunted wind turbines won’t turn because there’s no wind, it’s all in a day’s work for the men and women whose job it is to stage the greatest sporting event in the world. Deliciously topical, wickedly funny and sometimes uncannily close to real life, Twenty Twelve proved a hit with British viewers and critics alike, receiving fabulous reviews on first transmission on BBC Four and equal praise when the series was repeated on BBC Two.
