Grrrr saw it on planner at 8.30 thought great. Why have they put it on at 7-30-8 then 8.30-9 when you are flicking through you don't think let me see if half the show was showing earlier!! Now have wait till it's all on iplayer. Stupid BBC

Pwoar Prince Harry.

The half hour gap is annoying, I know EastEnders is a religion for some but I am sure there are better ways they could have done it. It's a shame the whole ceremony isn't being shown on TV but I look forward to seeing it on iplayer.

Back on tomorrow at 7pm. Loved that Scottish man. Pwoar.

I am. I feel semi unhappy about it. I like the aspect of giving hope and celebrating people. I don't know how exactly to word/articulate my reservations well.

I know what you mean Social. I think it's one of those issues where dissenters will be blasted though. People just want a triumphant feel good story.

I am sure some people will be told bullied because others at the games achieved things, so should they, amongst other things.

I don't understand why there would be dissenters though?
The athletes in the Invictus Games are no different to Paralympians (other than the fact that they're all ex service personnel).

Enough of the chat, want to see more of the events!

SoleBizzz Tue 10-May-16 22:09:36

Ffs when do we get to watch Invictus properly? ??????

Bombaybunty Tue 10-May-16 22:14:24

The coverage is appalling, so few of the actual competition being shown.
It's a disgrace.

The personal stories are very moving and interesting but make a separate programme.

SoleBizzz Tue 10-May-16 22:15:32

I'm gutted. I really want to see the events. What's the point of just showing chats

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 11-May-16 19:11:47

Totally agree. Every time I turn on it is people sitting on a sofa.

TinklyLittleLaugh Thu 12-May-16 11:38:30

Possibly because some of the powers that be are looking at it more as a propaganda exercise than a sporting event.

Basketball on now. It is sooo fast paced and exciting, I love it and all the lovely arms and shoulders of the players
