Olympics 2012: 50 Greatest Moments

Olympics 2012: 50 Greatest Moments
Radio Times
Review by:
James Gill

Beaming Olympics mainstay Gabby Logan reminds us of the lighter side of London 2012 in this irreverent countdown. Mixed in with Team GB highlights are forgotten gems. Remember the collective gasps of “Oooh!” as the German diver Stephan Feck ”back-flopped” off the Aquatics Centre diving board? Or when South African dad Bert le Clos’s delight at his son winning gold bubbled over live on air?

From Her Majesty’s startling Opening Ceremony entrance to Usain Bolt’s impersonation of the Mobot, this top 50 revels in London 2012’s comedy as well as its drama.

About this programme
