Olympic organisers have stepped up attempts to generate £1bn in merchandising revenues by launching a flagship store at Heathrow‘s Terminal 5 and unveiling an animated film featuring the 2012 mascots and a string of Team GB athletes.

The store is the first to open at an airport, acknowledging that a large proportion of the £1bn revenue target – which will raise £80m in profit towards the London Organising Committee‘s operational budget of £2bn – will come from the pockets of overseas visitors.

To coincide with the opening, a second animated film featuring Olympic and Paralympic mascots Wenlock and Mandeville, written by children’s author Michael Morpurgo, has been released.

The film, Adventures on a Rainbow, is narrated by Simon Russell Beale.

Unfortunately, they are not very happy for people to share the video on blogs or websites, so you have to click to watch on YouTube. Some people are SOOOO protective, don’t you think?
