The world is going Olympics-crazy - and it would be great to get some Olympics-related memories on the StoryVault site. While we wait, it's fun to tune in to the memory of Paul Russell, formerly MD of CBS. Paul tells an hilarious story of how CBS in the States was very keen to win the broadcast rights to the Olympics in Moscow of 1980. And then how the legendary boss of CBS - Bill Paley - chose to reward the man who secured the rights. While you are at it, do look up some of Paul's other anecdotes from his time at CBS. They're a riot.
