Boycott: Part 1
The team faces a crisis when Dr Benhamadi, head of the Algerian contingent, notices that the Shared Belief Centre does not face Mecca and threatens a boycott unless a new mosque is built. This angers the French athletes who are against concessions to Algeria but gathers support from other Islamic countries. Despite problems moving into his new flat and welcoming incoming staff member Fi Healey, head of legacy, Ian goes to the Foreign office for a video link-up with Benhamadi to rectify matters. Unfortunately he is let down by a series of technical malfunctions.

Boycott: Part 2
A compromise seems to be reached when Nick suggests turning the Mecca-facing laundry building into the new mosque and Ian, accompanied by the annoying Siobhan and her unhelpful Christian PR friend, Reverend Richard Salter, puts this to Saleem Ahmed of the Muslim Focus UK group. Saleem however believes that a minaret would solve matters and thankfully architect Mike Whittaker is able to fashion one out of a roof-top heating duct. The crisis is averted and Ian finally gets the keys to his flat but offends Sally in the process.

Clarence House
Whilst the current problem for the team is the amount of toilets per athlete they must also decide the fate of the stadium post-games. Kay is all for a permanent running track but then West Ham and Spurs begin a bidding war for a new ground. A call from Prince Charles' team at Clarence House to link his mother's half century on the throne with the games yields the snappy term Jubilympics but Clarence House reject it as too backward looking, plumping instead for Jubilee 2012. The prince also comes in handy in choosing which soccer team should buy the stadium - until ...

The Rapper
The team needs to rely on Juiced,an American condom firm, to sponsor a statue on the site,which involves a sexual health campaign to publicise the company. Siobhan suggests a rapper perform a song celebrating contraception but this antagonises Roman Catholic countries and has to be cancelled. Fortunately office junior Daniel has an alternative suggestion. Less successful is the planning of the journey of the Olympic torch,which involves putting existing towns into other counties.

With a month to go before the games, Ian holds a staff meeting which, of course, accomplishes little. Kay tries unsuccessfully to sell the stadium to Dagenham and Redbridge Football Club whilst Siobhan, with her usual incompetence, suggests rebranding the travel advice guide so that pedestrians can choose their own pavements. Following the confiscation of a starting pistol containing live bullets, Ian meets with police top brass, but, during a demonstration of safety pistols for visiting American security officers, gets shot in the foot.

Inclusivity Day
As Ian recovers in hospital his P.A. Daniel announces that he is leaving to work for Sebastian Coe,though fortunately he has recruited a highly efficient replacement - Sally. In fact she is the only member of the team to understand what is meant by Inclusivity Day,when Paralympian Tanni Grey-Thompson and Women's Football captain Carey Taylor - whose unpopular sport Siobhan has been trying to sell in the trendiest way - will plant an oak tree. Fi manages to win over a grumpy trust manager to allow the planting but,as everybody has forgotten to bring the acorn,they have...

After Ian has solved the display problem by using virtual fireworks the team disbands with Ian and Sally going on holiday to Italy but Ian...
