On the second edition of this new series, Katharine Merry tells the full, inside story from one of the most iconic nights in Olympic history. In a far cry from junior days when they raced together in Horsham, Sussex, Merry won 400m bronze, behind Aussie hero Cathy Freeman, in front of 112,000 spectators and the eyes of the world. From the agonising build-up to the emotion of the podium, Katharine takes you to Sydney, 20 years on. Her description of silence on the blocks followed by a “wall of noise” will send shivers. Sonja McLaughlan is alongside host Jonathan Overend for Episode Two, in association with Aldi UK, official supermarket partner of Team GB. She talks about her early days as a lone woman in rugby reporting and why the tie was binned at the Beeb. Plus, has Kath still got Sonj's 2012 gift?
