The Games will take place in Australia’s Gold Coast near Queensland.
What is the time difference?
The Gold Coast is nine hours ahead of the UK, meaning that a number of events will take place overnight. However, UK viewers will be able to catch up in the morning thanks to BBC highlights programmes, and many of the athletics medal events will climax in the morning when UK viewers can watch live.
How can I watch the Commonwealth Games on TV in the UK?
Both BBC1 and BBC2 will be showing full coverage of the Games until Sunday 15th April, with even more live streams and highlights on the BBC Sport website.
Live coverage starts around 12 midnight and continues on either BBC1 or 2 until around 1pm each day. Highlights and replays will then be shown in the afternoon, with an evening highlights show, Today at the Games, airing every day (mostly on BBC2).
On radio, BBC Radio 5 Live will be bringing live commentary every day.
