I watched the programme and was annoyed to see the Olympics people getting top billing as sporting heroes. When one had seen what other people had done, at enormous personal risk or sacrifice to help others, to see them get pride of place for helping no-one but themselves, and be well paid for doing it, to me, devalued the awards that everybody else got.
There. Grumpy old man moment over, for now .....

I am going to hate myself for having to agree with you for once LOL.
Like you I couldn't unnderstand why the Olympic team were there. Also I felt the program was being used for political propaganda.

Yes, those slimy toads gaining political capital by insinuating themselves into the programme, quite frankly, I found nausiating.

A post vote round of applause for all those that voted.
Was lucky enough to meet Mark and the crew at the Naming Ceremony of their new Tamar Class.
