At the end of 2011 BOOM produced the first series of BT and Channel 4 present… which gave a personal and emotional account of five Paralympic athletes’ in the build up to the games.
Now, with 100 days to go until the London 2012 Paralympic games, BOOM has produced Series 2 which has captured the athletes during their final preparations to compete at the World’s biggest games. Each of these films has a dreamlike, ponderous quality, with our athletes contemplating what awaits them as the Games fast approach.
Series 3 will go into Production later in the year, to be broadcast when the Paralympic games have come to a close in September 2012. It will reflect on the athletes’ journeys so far, the highs and the lows, but looking to the future as the athletes prepare for the next cycle of competition.
