BBC Russian Service offers special webcast ahead of the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony
Hours before the opening ceremony of the London Olympics, bbcrussian.com will broadcast a special, 90-minute one-off edition of London Calling – a live webcast with audience involvement about the upcoming games.
Broadcast via the website bbcrussian.com from BBC Russian’s London studio from 16.00 London time (19.00 Moscow time), London Calling will also be shown live on the BBC Russian partner station in Moscow, Dozhd TV.
Host Seva Novgorodsev says, “With London Calling, we want to create a very special connection between London on the one hand and Russian Olympic past and present on the other. From London traffic jams to the design of the Russian Olympic team kit, London Calling will bring our audiences an informed and inspired conversation – just as the world counts down to the official start of the spectacular global sporting event.”
