    Just watched this and spent the whole programme seething about the childish and irritating comments and antics of one of the presenters Greg James. Poor Gabby Logan must have wondered what she had done to deserve this idiotic sidekick, his whole presence was neither necessary or did anything to add to the programme. Really bad idea BBC!

    BBC 3 managed what would seem to be impossible, to make a bad programme about London 2012. I have never seen Greg James before and I hope I do not see him again. Very childish and not at all amusing. Far too many celebrities and not enough action.

    You are correct, I did not realise there was another relevant thread, despite having searched for a thread before posting last night under the programme title and nothing came up. I had not realised the programme had been shown last week either. Interesting to see I was not alone in my thoughts about the presentation though, and although BBC3 may be aimed at a 'younger' audience, my 16 year old son was watching with me and found the so called 'banter' between Greg and Gabby equally cringeworthy. I also agree with the comments about the format, I know when it gets to the end if the year there seems to be an irresistible urge to produce 'best of' and 'top 50/100' programmes but why bother with presenters at all? A voice over explaining the clips would have sufficed.
