The Olympic memories come flooding back as the BBC bathes us in 2012 nostalgia. No point trying to resist. Inspire: the Olympic Journey is the first of a series devoted to the buzzword they never tired of in the sitcom Twenty Twelve – “legacy”. Gabby Logan is looking ahead to next year’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and introducing potential stars for Rio in 2016.


Presenter Gabby Logan takes an in-depth look at sports stories, beginning with a visit to Glasgow ahead of next year's Commonwealth Games, and receives a guided tour of the city by former track cyclist Chris Hoy. Plus, Matthew Pinsent looks at the legacy of London 2012, Katherine Grainger reflects on life after the Olympic Games for key sports personalities such as Victoria Pendleton, Helen Glover and Dai Greene, and 17-year-old swimmer Siobhan-Marie O'Connor is profiled as a potential star of Rio 2016.
