"There are television cameras from countries that you've probably never heard of watching you step out on to the Olympic track - 600 million people watching you run." The words are those of Brendan Foster, 'Big Bren', the only British athlete to win a medal at the 1976 Olympic Games.

The words are those of Christopher Brasher, who has attended every Olympic Games since 1952.
Now Big Bren and Brasher invite all those millions of people in Britain who watched the Olympics on television to join them in an exploration of what the Olympics really mean to the athletes and to their nation.
