News from Freesat:

Olympic Champion Michael Johnson will join the BBC commentary team to report on the nine days of athletics action - disciplines ranging from Relay to Triple Jump and Javelin Throw to 5,000 Metres. Some of this year's hopefuls include British runner Christine Ohuruogu, as well as American-born Allyson Felix and LaShawn Merritt.

Berlin Olympic Stadium is the host of these prestigious games and for the first time in its history the marathon and walking competitions will take place in Berlin's city centre - all in brilliant high definition.

HD is perfect for watching all the high-speed athletic action, with a picture that is five times the quality of normal digital TV. This amazing event in pin-sharp HD has a staggering 1,800 athletes, 47 competitions and 24 disciplines, there should be no need for photo finishes.
