Season 3

Twenty Twelve is a British television mockumentary comedy series written and directed by John Morton which follows the trials of the management of the Olympic Deliverance Commission (ODC), the body tasked to organise the 2012 London Summer Olympics, as they overcome logistical difficulties, production errors, infrastructure problems and troublesome contributors.

The series premiered in the UK on BBC Four on 14 March, 2011.

Twenty Twelve premiered in South Africa on DStv's BBC Entertainment channel on Tuesday 5 June 2012, at 22h00. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 3 has not yet aired in South Africa.

Synopsis

Hugh Bonneville, Jessica Hynes and Olivia Colman star in this comedy about the people paddling hard beneath the water to make the Olympics happen in London in 2012.

Filmed in a documentary style, Twenty Twelve deals with such hot topics as how to phase the traffic lights across London to get people from west to east, who to sell the Taekwondo hall to after the event, what to do when protesters leave large quantities of horse dung on the doorstep in protest at the location of the equestrian events site, and how to cope with sportsmen who want to help but are just too dull.

From getting a busload of non-English speaking Brazilians from A to B, who to appoint to run the Cultural Olympiad, and what to do when the much-vaunted wind turbines won't turn because there's no wind, it's all in a day's work for the men and women whose job it is to stage the greatest sporting event in the world.

Deliciously topical, wickedly funny and sometimes uncannily close to real life, Twenty Twelve is a cautionary tale on how not to stage a major global sporting event.
