Possibly not sanctioned by the official international Olympic Committee, The Games is the ground breaking deadpan comedy that took a satirical look at the organisational triumph which produced the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Documentary cameras were given carte blanche access to the offices of top-flight bureaucrats as they negotiated their way through complex issues, PR disasters, budget blowouts, political interference and 100 metre running tracks that were not strictly accurate in term of length. Episodes include: The 100 Metres Track, New Technology and Y2k, J'Accuse, Land Claim, Inquiry, Strike, Immigration, Solar and The End. A ratings sensation, winner of the Logie for Most Outstanding Comedy programme and an AFI Award for Best Screenplay, The Games stars John Clarke, Gina Riley, Bryan Dawe and Nicholas Bell.
