Episode 1

With the clock ticking inexorably down, the marketing team creates a major public event to mark the ‘1000 days to go’ milestone. A huge clock designed by a modern British artist will be installed outside Tate Modern on the banks of the Thames in a ceremony performed by both Lord Sebastian Coe and London’s Mayor Boris Johnson and will count down towards the start of the Olympic Games. The only problem is that the clock has a potentially disastrous design flaw which no-one seems to have noticed until it’s too late.

Meanwhile, the process of deciding which public figures should be approached to carry the Olympic Torch on its journey around Britain has begun.
