Anglia (West) Look East (West sub-opt)

Christmas Commercials 2018



Parts of this are filmed in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. The wide shot of the choir and Christmas tree/market is all reall, apart from the branch of Boots in the background. That is the exterior of Hitchin's Boot branch, but it's not actually located as it appears in the shot. It's further down.

In reality, there's a branch of Waterstones and a Pitcher & Piano there.

The 2012 Paralympic Games

Just had a scoot through the Channel 4 thread and this one and can't find any mention of the new Paralympic ident.

A canal scene. Narrow boats navigate a lock. A Paralympic athlete runs past and the camera pans round to reveal the Big Breakfast house and the Olympic Stadium. The '4' is really, really subtle. An excellent addition to the set, further sealing Channel 4 as the king of tv pres (as it has been for many years).

Team GB

Athletes at the Olympics and Paralympics technically compete for their teams, not for their countries.

"Great Britain is the team that sends athletes from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK) plus the three Crown dependencies and all but three of the British overseas territories, to the Olympic Games." - Wiki

Thus, referring to the Great Britain team as Team GB is entirely accurate and is how the team wishes to be referred to as.
