It is a challenge for the athletes as well as for London. As the British capital geared up to host the Olympics, European TV channels gave their views. In this week’s ‘Perspectives’ we go firstly to RAI 2 from Italy, where they spoke of anticipation, as well as both the successes and the problems at the games.
Then at France 2, we see how the French team is settling in to the Olympic village. Take a look at the facilities as well as the special arrangements for some of the athletes.
TVE from Spain also showed their athletes getting settled in, and the magical atmosphere as representatives from all over the world come together for the unique Olympic experience.
Finally on Russian RTR, we meet some of the returning Russian Olympic hopefuls, and take a close up look at the medals.
