Covering the Olympic Parade

Lou Birt - Programme Editor | 13:29 PM, Wednesday, 15 October 2008

Thursday's show comes live from Trafalgar Square for the Olympic parade.

From 9, Victoria will be in the café looking onto the square, but we'll also have reporters and producers along the route and on the open-top bus itself. The parade itself starts at 11, and we'll stay on air for an extra hour to give Victoria a chance to interview the athletes as they get off the special buses.

Isn't it hard to believe the Olympics ended almost 8 weeks ago? It feels like a lifetime with everything that's happened since. London 2012 might seem a long way away - but, let's face it, we all need something to look forward to, don't we?

UPDATE - see pictures from the programme in the slideshow below

Cherry has sent us the picture below and says:
"I'm very happy to support Team GB - their performance was a rare opportunity for us to be proud and share something positive, surely this is to be treasured in these trying financial times.

I recently went to a 'Heroes & Heroines' fancy dress party as Rebecca Adlington. The party was hosted by an Aussie so my GB flag with "better than Australia" stuck on it went down very well.

Looking forward to 2012."


You can see where we are broadcasting from by watching this video we shot at the start of the programme.
