2012 Paralympic Games
I'll admit it... I am very excited about the 2012 Paralymic Games. More so after getting really into the Olympic Games.
Hopefully my productivity won't be too badly affected.
That said, the jury is out about Channel 4's coverage in the UK. The BBC's coverage of the Olympics was second-to-none… their TV coverage was brilliant with so much choice… especially when you consider Sky's 'red button' option. I also enjoyed the coverage on Radio 5Live… a channel I hadn't listened to prior to the Olympics. Colin Murray was very entertaining… as was Claire Balding on the TV… she really is a great presenter and I hope she can, along with Jon Snow, recapture some of the BBC's excellence for C4.
Anyway… I'm looking forward to eleven days of competition… and hope I can overlook the adverts. That said… some of the adverts have been particularly good… especially C4's own ad (above).
Speaking of ads... I was taken with this ad for the Canadian Paralympic Committee which was shot in one take:
I hope you will enjoy the Games as much as I will.
