Manchester 2002 Commonwealth Games
The Queen's Jubilee Baton Relay Route

International Route

You can follow the Commonwealth Games baton on its 85-day tour of 23 Commonwealth countries. We have a team of video journalists who will be with the Queen's Jubilee Baton every day and filming reports from the countries on the route.

First reports will come from Andy Martin, touring Canada, the West Indies and the Caribbean. Then Yasmin Khan takes over to cover the Africa stages from Accra to Johannesburg. Following the baton across Australia, New Zealand and Oceania from Perth to Tonga will be Nikki Mitchell. And the route back to the UK from Brunei to Malta will come under the video lens of Tony Roe.

Meet our Video Journalists

If you know of any stories, projects or personalities that might make a feature for one of the team, let us know. We'll need full details, including e-mail addresses or telephone numbers of everybody involved. E-mail us at
