Event Details

London 2012 will be the biggest event the BBC has covered in our lifetime, and will be broadcast to millions on TV, radio, online and IPTV.

So what part will social media play in the BBC’s coverage? How will athletes and journalists use social media during the Olympics? How can the BBC’s audience expect to interact with broadcast coverage and the key players from the worlds of sports and entertainment?

Chaired by the BBC’s director of 2012, Roger Mosey, this event brings you the athletes’ and broadcasters’ view, with reigning Olympic gold medallists and world rowing champions Mark Hunter MBE and Zac Purchase MBE on the panel,alongside athlete-turned-broadcaster Gail Emms, and Lewis Wiltshire from BBC sport.

If you have questions you would like to ask the panel, let us know at #SMWLDNbbc
