John Clarke and Ross Stevenson’s brilliant mockumentary about the Logistics Operation team assigned to mount the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

Using their own names, Clarke played the head of administration and logistics, Gina Riley the marketing and liaison manager, Bryan Dawe the accounts, budgeting and finance manager, and Nicholas Bell the secretary to the Minister for the Games.

The crackling dialogue took the form of a hilarious mix of indecision, chaos, and bureaucratic double-speak.
