The Black Dyke Band perform Pure Gold 4x4 Relay, a 2012 Cultural Olympiad Commission, in concert at Symphony Hall Birmingham, with conductor Nicholas Childs and The Manchester Chorale.

The piece is divided into four three minute "legs": power, speed, losing ground and finally, triumph, to tell the tale of success through team work and sporting pride.
