It's the countdown to the Sydney 2000 Olympics, and the Head of Administration and Logistics, John Clarke, and his colleagues, Bryan Dawe, Head of Accounts, Budgeting and Finance, and Gina Riley, Marketing and Liaison Manager wish everyone to know that everything is running smoothly. Certainly, the running track is not actually 100 meters, allowing Bryan to break the world record - but we can always put a bend in it, that's no problem. And 30% of the athletes and their sponsors may refuse to come because of the new fool-proof drug test - but that's a small price to pay to be known as the the very first drugs-free Olympics. And as for the rumours about the recently deceased IOC VIP dying in a King's Cross brothel - nonsense. That's just media hype. As are the rumours that the fencing may be dropped because there aren't enough venues or that the la crosse centre isn't actually built yet. In future may we suggest you not believe everything you see on television? Written by

This show is brilliant! Not only the satire, but the (Clarke) style of writing, and the performances of the fine cast. What really makes it worthwhile viewing is the way it portrays the NSW State government's and the Australian Federal Government's misappropriation of funds from health, education etc. in order to pay for these games, of which, the budget has completely blown out.
