London 2012 Documentary: Britain’s Olympic Torch Relay

London  BBC Titles  e

The BBC will broadcast a documentary tonight looking back at the last 2 months of Britain’s Olympic torch relay.

With just two days to go before the Olympic flame reaches its final destination at the Olympic Stadium and officially starts the Games in London, this story tells the tale of how the 2012 torch relay has captured the imagination of the British public.

Millions of people have lined the streets since mid-May to watch the ‘ordinary’ torch bearers with extraordinary personal stories carry the torch through nearly a thousand towns and cities on its way to London.

The programme tells some of those stories that have touched the nation, such as that of paratrooper Ben Parkinson, considered to be the most seriously-wounded soldier to survive the war in Afghanistan, who somehow walked his section of the relay using his prosthetic legs.

Britain’s Olympic Torch Relay Story – Tonight, 7.30pm on BBC One.
