Chairman of the London 2012 Organising Committee, Seb Coe, on July 14th 2011 revealed 100 members of the public selected from across the UK to participate in BT’s Storytellers campaign to document the story of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
It was my privilege to not only be chosen as a BT Storyteller, but also to be among the 15 chosen to represent each region of the UK to be at it’s launch. We were joined by Seb Coe and British Olympic legend Daley Thompson at St. Pancras Station to be interviewed by TV, radio and for Internet sites, plus it was an opportunity for us to discuss our plans to capture the nation’s excitement in the build-up to, and during, London 2012.
Following on from the launch of the BT Storytellers initiative, Joanne Malin from BBC WM asked for a short interview about my involvement with the Storytellers program. You can hear the interview here.
Here are a few images from the launch and I’ll be posting more over the coming year, in the run up to the games.
