The Ration Book Olympics
- By: Tommy Godwin, Dorothy Manley, Roger Bannister
- Narrated by: Clare Balding
- Length: 56 mins
Clare Balding looks back at the time the Olympic Games came to London in 1948. Three years after the end of the Second World War, Britain was still gripped by austerity. Rationing was still in force, severe bomb damage was still much in evidence, and no new sports facilities could be built. Visiting athletes were put up in schools and RAF camps. Yet the Games were a resounding success and actually made a profit.
