Series 1, Episode 6
Among the many groups of people who are against holding equestrian events in Greenwich Park are local residents, led by self-styled maverick film director Tony Ward. Given that it's now over 30 years since he made his one - and so far only - successful film, Ward has had a lot of time on his hands to think about how angry he is and to plan his campaign of protest.
It starts with the arrival of an enormous pile of horse manure on the pavement outside the Olympic Deliverance Commission offices and climaxes with a live head-to-head debate with Head of Deliverance Ian Fletcher on BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
Meanwhile, in Ian's personal life, manure of a different kind finally hits the fan and he finds himself effectively locked out of his own house by his wife. Fortunately, his ever-loyal PA Sally is on hand and completely ready to pick up the pieces.
