Twenty Twelve Full Episode Guide

  • With ten days left to try to tie up loose ends, the Deliverance Team's problems begin to pile up.

  • Having been shot in the foot with a faulty starting pistol, Head of Deliverance Ian Fletcher discovers he will soon be without a PA, as Daniel has accepted a different job. The ODC team attempt to work out how to launch 'Inclusivity Day'. PR Company Perfect Curve and Siobhan Sharpe comes up with a viral campaign designed to change the face of women's football, but without mentioning the sport.

  • Ian chairs the final meeting of the Special Catastrophisation Unit. When someone gets caught modifying the Olympic starting pistols to fire live rounds, the news must be handled delicately.

  • Siobhan's team collaborates on a huge sexual health campaign, with a rap song called Get it On. Will it create problems among religious groups?

  • A decision must be made about the future of the Olympic Stadium, and Clarence House has asked the ODC to consider linking the Twenty Twelve Olympics with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee - is "Jubilympics" the perfect branding solution?

  • The Algerians set a deadline of midnight for a solution to their demand for a Shared Belief Centre which faces Mecca. France are also now threatening to pull out of the Games if a separate mosque is built. The team decide to swap the Shared Belief Centre with the Laundry Services Building which already faces Mecca. Ian's PA Sally offers him a spare room for the night while his water is turned off.

  • The decision to have the equestrian events taking part in Greenwich Park is one of the most controversial choices made by the Olympic team, as the Deliverance team finds out. Ian finds his personal life problematic.

  • There are only three applicants for the post of Curator of the Cultural Olympiad so how difficult can it be to select the best candidate? Ian and the team are about to find out when they are forced to go through a series of spectacular u-turns.

  • Dave Wellbeck is an ex-athlete, double Olympic silver medalist and in theory a natural choice as Brand Ambassador for Raising the Bar - a scheme to get young people inspired by Olympic ideals. He's hard working, conscientious and loyal but the truth is that he has about as much charisma as a dimmer switch. Ian and Siobhan have different views on how to deal with the problem.

  • A visiting group of dignitaries from Rio (the Olympic host in 2016) is in London for the week. For Head of Deliverance Ian Fletcher and his team the mission is simple. They have to get them across London in time to meet Lord Coe for an official reception at the Olympic Stadium. What can possibly go wrong?
