Yet much of the BBC’s presentation seemed to rely on whipping back to reaction shots from someone’s brother or sister in Haringey or Harwich. Quite why a mumbled “Yeah, she ate muesli for a while”, repeated ad infinitum on breakfast TV, can compare with the private glory of an individual’s delight in Rio eludes me; and, let’s face it, even the wisest athletes don’t have too much to say for themselves. It is little coincidence that, between Olympics, few feature on panel games or Nobel committees: they just row or ride or jump or do things with turning food into muscles. Wiggins and, actually, Andy Murray can do delightfully nuanced sarcasm, but that’s about it: far-off siblings, subjected to a furry mic in the face at 8am and ordered to vouchsafe the secret of sporting success, become understandably monosyllabic. Which makes for less than wonderful television. But the Beeb often stuck with that, with this less than wonderful television. About 20 years ago, all media stopped asking: “What do you think/what did you see?” and started asking: “How do you feel?”, and this is the result.

Scary scarcely begins to describe the scene as the helicopter hovered just feet from a cliff face in near zero visibility, the hair’s-breadth decisions being made over the crew’s communications system keeping tension levels sky high.
