Alan Coren narrates a film taking a humorous peek behind the scenes of the 1948 London Olympics. Set against a backdrop of austerity, there were moments when the games were in danger of becoming a farce. British athletes got fit on jelly and custard, the women had to make their own kit, and no one could find the British flag for the opening ceremony.
