New monthly BBC show: “Inspire: The Olympic Journey”

A new monthly magazine series has begun on BBC One, seeking to celebrate the biggest names, the rising stars and the unsung heroes of sport. The first episode of “Inspire: The Olympic Journey” was broadcast on Saturday 27th July, with presenter Gabby Logan in Glasgow to mark the one year milestone to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The show sees the presenter receive a guided tour of the city by Glasgow 2014 Ambassador Sir Chris Hoy and visit the velodrome named after the star which will host the track cycling at the Games.

It also features well-known athletes, as presenters and interviewees, looking at the legacy of London 2012 and taking a look ahead at some of the young athletes who may be the stars of future Games.

The first episode is currently available on BBC iPlayer and the show returns each month, with a new selection of stars and hopefuls.
