/\/\  Caught like the last 20 mins.   Not very over-the-top; a little more restrained -- but the energy is very western.  Of course, mass displays and a lot of jumping around,  fake energy.  Sort of reminded me of Melbourne 2006.  

Oh wait,  I spoke too soon.  The big post-lighting climax just came in.  Those emerging red blossom lanterns (oh wait, are those red-waxed cheese balls :lol: )  just came up.  Really IMPRESSIVE -- but what would have been impressive is if they lit up in various colors and patterns.  But again, they didn't ask me.  -_-

We've seen the TVE pre-Barcelona 1992 Opening Ceremony preview programming on TVE1. Now watch the immediate post-Opening Ceremony reactions and critiques from it largely from its CIRT studios on this 25th anniversary of these incredible Olympic Games:

Last week was the 45th anniversary of the saddest moment in Olympic history - the Munich massacre.  To mark this sad anniversary I have located the complete ARD broadcast of the Memorial Service held in Munich's Olympic Stadium on September 6, 1972 in 6 parts.  You can watch the preview versions free online at these links:

The Kuala Lumpur 2017 SEA Games came to a close with this Closing Ceremony at Bukit Jalil National Stadium. Basically it just run of the mill as you would expect in many ways with them. Yet it had energy. Lots of it. And singer Ella with the best salute to Games volunteers I seen anywhere so far:

Too soon ! :(

Rights-holding broadcasters will be wanting to keep it exclusive on their catch-up services for a week or two.

On that note, I do feel disappointed that we can't enjoy the Los Angeles 1984 Opening Ceremony on YouTube that had the ABC commentary anymore--and I seriously think the Globo version with Galvao Bueno disappeared too. Enjoyed watching it so much so many times after having not seeing in so many years since SpiritOf84 uploaded it. That kickstarted the Olympic love for me. This must be part of the terms of agreement with the US edition of the Olympic Channel hitting. Yet that has yet to show them--and I don't think there's a commentary-free version existing though the audio overdub can be omitted.

Here is an interesting find:

Radio Moscow's English Language Service's coverage of the Moscow 1980 Closing Ceremony! Features a running description of the ceremony in English - including Lord Killanin's entire speech without voiceover.

I don't want to sound like a naysayer but one thing I always hated of the Olympic Channel was showing the ceremonies in a 240p resolution. Like, what is this, 2006?

Have you noticed they always take down ceremonies videos whenever there is a proximity of Olympic Games?

I guess they do not realize that they can be used to heighten anticipation for the upcoming Games.  I was planning to watch all the winter ones in January in the weeks leading up to the Games.

Funny thing, i was precisely doing the same thing these days, rewatching the ceremonies from Calgary to SLC. They haven't taken down these ones yet last time I checked.

So...you take down the videos when people might want to watch them. Logic so warped it can only involve NBC &/or IOC :wacko:

Salt Lake 2002 ceremonies are also now gone from the channel. 

IOC being dumbass as usual. Better watch all the ceremonies while we still can.
