Here's Bill's links:

The BBC item is a cut-down rework of an excellent Channel 4 TV one hour documentary analysis of the subject, dealing with the subject in some scientific depth, presented by Michael Johnson (200m gold at Atlanta in 1996). I speculate that Johnson brought the subject to the notice of senior BBC editoral staff covering the Olympics.

Johnson was in the presentation studio when the BBC aired this item - his comment was that although 90-something percent of the population of Jamaica carry the 'sprint' gene, 8% of the human race in general also have the gene, so, for those 8%, 'nurture' (ie training) could produce a sprint performance comparable to descendants of the slave trade.

Johnson has been one of the lead in-vision commentators during the Athletics coverage - I speculate the VO of this cut-down was modeled on the delivery of Michael's original reading, he being otherwise occupied with his in-vision stuff.

Here's what the original sounded like ;-)
