Olympic Dreams

5:00pm Sunday 22 January on BBC ONE

Olympic Dreams highlights the hard work and dedication of our regions’ sporting superstars on their journey towards the ultimate Olympic goal.

Across England, each region profiles some of the men and women hoping to represent their country at the Olympics and Paralympics in 2012 and shows the sacrifices they make in pursuit of their dreams. For some there is great joy as they qualify for the Games. For others there is bitter disappointment. The programmes also show how venues are getting ready to welcome competitors from all over the world.

The programme presenters are: West – Alistair Durden and Heather Fell; South – Tony Husband; Yorkshire – Tanya Arnold; East Yorkshire & Lincolnshire – John Inverdale; South East – Neil Bell; London – Sara Orchard; East – Gail Emms and Jonathan Park; North West – Stephen Parry; East Midlands – Colin Hazelden; West Midlands – Richie Woodhall; NE & Cumbria – Katie Gornall and Jeff Brown; and South West – Natalie Cornah.
