Watching the London 2012 Olympic via the BBC:
After an exhausting Friday night and a long Saturday watching the Road Racing, Sunday allowed the chance to slob in front of the TV and take the lazy approach to watching the Olympics.
So I joined the BBC in their studio, which, given the movements of Hazel Irvine’s hair, was seemingly a bit windy.
The BBC have developed a bit of a reputation for putting together wonderful shorts, and there were some brilliant ones around Rebecca Adlington. But the broadcasters have a tough job in the first few days of any olympics: not that much actually goes on. Consequently, I saw the Adlington interview three times and there was lots of pundit chats through out the day.
Poor old Ian Thorpe had to extend his expert knowledge of the swimming pool to discuss equestrian, and Amir Khan came up to talk about anything but boxing. Hopefully, as the action increases and the Beeb uses its full phonebook to all its potential, the good base set up over the weekend will turn into outstanding coverage.
