BBC Olympics

I love these opening titles that the BBC are using for the Olympics.

From the beeb's Olympics blog 'the animation, by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett - the team behind Gorillaz - twists the tale of the classical Chinese novel "Journey to the West", turning it into a "Journey to the East" and the Beijing Olympics.'

If only American TV channels would do something as cool. Sometimes I miss the BBC!! The real BBC that is. BBC America - although better than nothing - just isn't the same!!

I'm intrigued to know what it's going to be like watching the Olympics in the US. I'm used to getting up at all hours to watch, say, Steve Redgrave and the men's four win the gold medal in rowing. Here, not only do I imagine there will be no coverage of anything that an American doesn't have a chance of winning in, but I'll have to watch it all on time delay in primetime.

Think it's time to book my trip to the UK for London 2012 already...!

Hi Dylan, I only have a vague recollection of watching the last Olympics here, but I believe the coverage was very geared towards the Americans.
