Not great when one member derails a promising thread - Neil provided content, mannewskev has added nothing to the discussion the new member started.
Quite frankly even back then the Olympics are such a well oiled machine when it comes to broadcast although the location obviously influences the look and the presentation essentially all Olympics are presented from an Olympic Broadcast Centre or alternative broadcast location and it's really only the backdrop the changes. Based on more recent years perhaps the BBC wouldn't have been based in a Granada Studios IBC and located themselves elsewhere in Manchester (whether that's Oxford Road or more likely a room with a view), with just the potential to have more in stadium anchoring than usual.
Thinking back to Manchester 2002 I can't actually remember anything about the BBC's set other than I think it flooded on the last day.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.
