We are thrilled to introduce our Olympic Special documentary series to celebrate the Olympic year. This series takes you on a journey through the history and evolution of the Olympic Games, spotlighting the monumental achievements and the intimate, behind-the-scenes stories that have shaped the world’s premier sporting event.

Our first episode takes us back to the iconic Sydney Olympics of 2000, a celebration of sporting excellence that set a new benchmark for Olympic hospitality and organization.

We have exclusive interviews with Jean Mitchell, an influential figure in Irish eventing and member of the Ground Jury at the Sydney Games, and Kate Green, a Journalist who covered five Olympic Games, Mike Etherington-Smith, the mastermind behind the cross-country courses at the Sydney Olympic Games and Andrew Hoy who won Team Gold and Individual Silver at his home games.

Of course, we chatted a lot and couldn’t keep it to one show so this is part 1 featuring:

Jean Mitchell shares her journey and the evolution of eventing. Her insights as a member of the Ground Jury provide a unique perspective on the Sydney Games’ success in capturing the spirit of the Olympics.

Kate Green brings to life the electric atmosphere of Sydney, painting a vivid picture of a nation where sport is revered, and the Olympics are a pinnacle of achievement. Her recounting of the logistical challenges and the triumphs of reporting in the early days of the Internet adds a layer of authenticity and nostalgia to our understanding of the 2000 Games.
