I have watched the opening ceremony last night which was fantastic. And turned my tv on in the morning hoping to watch the Paralympics whilst getting dc ready for school and some during the day whilst doing chores, where are they? I recall the mainstream Olympics being everywhere straight after the opening ceremony?

Channel 4
But there won't be any this morning because of the time difference. Live coverage starts at 1 pm today I think.

Thank you Seeline smile

As Seeline said, live coverage will be on channel4 from 1pm. I think All4 do highlights in the morning and also live streaming.
I am looking forward to it.

Me too, the athletes are awsome, and it will be fantastic to see them compete. I diden't watch much mainstream Olympics, but will watch the Paralympics when I can.

BBC WS radio is covering this a lot, too (but you need DAB).

We managed to go to quite a few events in 2012 and that was a fantastic experience.

Really disappointed it's the last leg rather than live or even pre-recorded sport on c4 7.30-8.30. That's prime 'put the toddler to bed and have two hours before my own bedtime' TV time and won't get to see much sport. I can't even find any red button type coverage elsewhere?

You can watch it live via their website.

Yay Jason Smyth!! Third Olympic 100m gold in a row!! By a Bolt-like margin too.

Yes, great race for Jason Smyth! So glad Libby Clegg has been reinstated in her event, and really excited about Johnny Peacock`s race later. Liam Malone looks really up to challenge for that title! Really enjoying the coverage on C4 today - it was a bit all over the place last night - far too much chat! Oh gosh, I`ve just looked up to see Johnny Vegas celebrating on The Last Leg - hilarious!

Well that was a pretty convincing win too....
