BBC Olympics titles revealed

RKCR/Y&R, Red Bee Media and Passion Pictures’ director Pete Candeland turn the UK into a giant sporting venue for the BBC’s Olympics marketing trail and title sequences

Super-stylised athletes are seen competing in Scottish lochs, terraced streets and around London in the film which will be used across all the BBC’s TV and digital Olympics content. The film also features Five Steps, the Olympics ‘theme tune’ written by Elbow.




RKCR/Y&R developed the concept, the animation was by Passion and the sequence was produced by Red Bee Media. It will be used for the BBC’s 2012 title sequences and on desktop, mobile tablets and ‘connected’ TV content. A full two-minute, 40 second version will be premiered on BBC ONe on July 3. 60, 40, 30 and five second versions will be used throughout the Games.
