    I have set up this thread as a continuation from the Olympic Torch Relay thread.

    Respect and follow the forum rules. Enjoy.

    This link takes you to the BBC London Olympics web page. IMHO, it's extremely useful. BBC Sport - London 2012 Olympics - Full Schedule : List View

    Well, we are in countdown mode here.

    The first of the pre opening ceremony events takes place today. A football match in Cardiff.

    Admiral, if you are following this thread, I thought you would be over here in the international broadcasting building at Stratford. What happened?

    We saw Steph Houghton's goal for Team GB. :)

    I'm now trying to figure out the button shortcuts to see different events.

    We didn't see the match, but saw extracts on 5 news.

    I've just been checking out the BBC Olympics website through which events can be watched live.

    I've got the BBC Olympic App, the BBC website, iPlayer and Freeview HD.......so one way or another I shouldn't miss anything.......which means I'll probably miss all the events that I really want to see!
