The Queen and biscuits?


London 2012's showpiece in Beijing could have been more than a bus and Beckham, a BBC documentary Building the Olympic Dream reveals.

The idea of the Queen serving tea, surrounded by dancers dressed as biscuits, was suggested at an early meeting but discarded.

The programme will be shown on BBC Two on Wednesday, 4 March at 2100 GMT or can be viewed afterwards on the BBC iPlayer. Episode two follows at the same time on Wednesday, 11 March.
