The first episode of the second series of Twenty Twelve aired last night, leaving the Olympic Deliverance Committee in a dilemma over how to resolve the threatened boycott by the Algerian team.
In Episode 2, The Algerians issue a deadline of midnight for a solution to their demand for a Shared Belief Centre which faces Mecca, whilst the French are now threatening to pull out of the Games if a separate mosque is built. The team comes up with the idea of swapping the Shared Belief Centre with the Laundry Services Building which already faces Mecca, but to appease the Christians they’ll need to get an architect in.
Is it architecturally possible to design a building that will satisfy everyone, or is the entire Olympic Games about to unravel in front of their eyes?
Ian’s PA Sally has managed to get the water turned on in his new flat, but it won’t be fixed for a couple of days, so he accepts her offer of her spare room for the night.
Twenty Twelve is produced by Paul Schlesinger and the executive producer is Jon Plowman.
