Siobhan and her team at Perfect Curve have come up with the idea of covering Anish Kapoor’s Orbit Tower with a special wrap sponsored by a condom company and making this the basis for a major sexual health campaign around the Olympics, in the final episode of the series.
By the time Ian is brought up to speed the accompanying rap video Get It On has already gone viral on YouTube. Is it too late to cancel the campaign and avoid alienating every single Catholic competing country? Meanwhile Graham is charged with re-designing the Olympic Torch Relay route so that it goes beyond Surrey. Elsewhere there’s unhappiness over who’s got what tickets to the actual Games.
Twenty Twelve is produced by Paul Schlesinger and the executive producer is Jon Plowman.
