Returning to the country where they began more than 60 years ago, the London
2012 Paralympic Games placed London and the UK on the world stage hosting 11
days of fierce competition for 4,200 athletes from 166 countries, (including
more than 300 GB athletes).
Hailed an absolute triumph, these games shed a light on the superhuman capabilities of the world's Paralympians who, like their able-bodied sporting counterparts, are set apart from the rest of us by their staggering ability, not their disability. With more than 2.7 million tickets sold, and combined television audiences of more than 39 million, these games brought disability into the mainstream - marking them as one of the most significant and influential sporting events to be staged in Britain for many years.
Clare Balding presents the most awe-inspiring moments from each day of the Games.
Disc 1 - 90-100 minutes of highlights of the Games narrated by Clare Balding and running through the best moments on a day-by-day basis with some trackside interviews.
Disc 2 - An edit of the Opening Ceremony, editing the athletes' entrance but retaining most of the rest of the ceremony.
Disc 3 - The Closing Ceremony, pretty much in its entirety - keeping all of Coldplay's performance plus Rhianna and Jay-Z.
