As I understand it Brian and Roger were both seperately approached to right music for the TV coverage of the 1988 Olympics, but neither of their tracks was chosen.

The tracks remained the property of the TV company until they were sold a couple of years later. Brian's theme was bootleged and shared extensivley, however Roger's theme didn't leak.

Quite recently (and I really don't know how) part of Roger's theme was shared, but the full version is not in general circulation. Which is a shame, because I like his best.
