Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Jessica Hynes (There She Goes), Olivia Colman (The Crown) and Amelia Bullmore (Scott & Bailey) star in this six-part comedy drama about the people paddling hard beneath the water to make the Olympics happen in London in 2012. Filmed in a documentary style, this comedy series 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 logistical nightmares to production errors, 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.
