Olympic coverage on the BBC

I knew that the BBC's olympic coverage was good, but I didn't appreciate quite how good until I read this. We shouldn't take the BBC's coverage for granted; they've put in a huge amount of effort and produced something really special, both online and over the air, and for free (if you're in the UK, anyway).

And this is over 5,000 miles away - just imagine what they'll be able to do when it's taking place in our own backyard!

Yay for Auntie!

The beeb, as good as its coverage was, is not free - it's funded by a tax, and a regressive one at that.

Medal as a verb though! *shudder*

That's a very good point, and I can't quite believe I called it free...
