twenty twelve


TwentyTwelve was first broadcast on the BBC in March 2011 to coincide with the 500 day countdown to the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games being held in London. Clip above from that first episode. Life imitated art (or preceeded) when the real Olympic countdown clock stopped counting down... for 6 hours... the day after this episode.

More clips below. Fahkin' brilliant.

Look okay but I bet it will be nothing on The Games....the original pre games mocumentary for the Sydney 2000 games......BTW the BBC has totally ran with the idea and made it there own. Pity...
