What I don't get is why the BBC are not covering the para's in the same way they covered the norms's.
There must be some BBC mandate that makes them or at least they should get a hell of a lot of backlash. At the very least I hope they lend the 24 Olympic HD channels and help out Channel4 (who to be fair do broadcast a lot of para events). It's just as entertaining, if not more in some cases, than the 'able' one.
The irony of the Torch relay itself is many in the official able relay where disabled or did it for disability charities
Ahh yes i forgot it was channel 4 doing it. Now im not a grumpy person but coming home from work and being able to easily watch some of the sports cheered me up. Lots of spirit. Im no sporting person either but then i dont watch for that, i watch purely because they are the worlds best sports people and that is a sight to behold.
I remember now, some of them. That is ironic.
Channel 4 have started showing some programs already ('warm ups') which have been good. Channel 4 documentaries are normally pretty good.
