With London 2012 around the corner, we take a look at who pays for the Olympics – and how much they cost
How much does it really cost to be the Olympics' host and where does the money come from?

Money, freedom and the British army being used on British people. People are loseing their homes. Hope we never have to go threw this again.

I hope the BBC pixel out Coca-Cola, McDonald's, Atos Healthcare.
 
I'd have been more behind the Olympics if they'd been held in another city - maybe Birmingham.

If the Westminster bubble thinks that the east end of London needs redevelopment then maybe they should venture out of the M25 more often.
 
Have you watched the Olympic torch vids on you tube. much better coverage than the #bbc
 
All I trust is mobile phone footage from 100s of phones. Not the BBC sponsored by the government. Impartial lol
 
The for profit status and self-aggrandizing nature of the olympic organization has completely turned me off to the events. It is a sad, pathetic organization using the hard work of athletes to push its own commoditized agenda.
 
I am behind the athletes. I think it's a shame they are all caught up in this. Why can't Athens keep the Olympics?
 
They get the sponsorships so it's only right they hold the games.
 
brazil are hosting 2016 just 2 years after the world cup 2014..... wow!
 
Nice video, but it needs to cite sources or it's pretty meaningless.
 
It was a plan@the beginning 5bn.when Beijing landed an Olympic,generation after generation can remember then budget went 9bn.so far cost is now currently 14bn.may be I m wrong.but BBC never always speak truth.

Look up the BBC in WW2.  They are the governments media.    They put out government propaganda which is a lie.   
 
I m not feeling any thrill about ur own version of comments as u said BBC
never lied.or never biased.its funny to listen if someone trying to defend
BBC with no clue.what they said not everything is lie.but they lie.u
beleive it or not.its fact.I don't beleive any news channels covering
everything with 100% truth.they just keep their own interest safe first.
 
+David Robertson They may upset the Government but now is time for the kill.

We have hundreds of thousands being made homeless for a political game.  Wr38 saves around £250 Mil over 5 years.  We are all meant to be celebrating but as me and many others can't plan a few moths ahead as we don't know what's going to happen.  All we can do is lash out.  I hate the Olympics the BBC are useless and I want to riot.
 
The digital switchover has happened.  If the BBC could break away from Government set up a subscription based service like Sky.  I would pay £145 a year for Eastenders, BBC Click & unbiased news.  At current it has been forced on me so I burnt my sky box. Unedited setting fire

Sorry this is an unedited video
 
oh I am sure the Wiki leaks guy has been.  No I mean a person that set himself on fire out side a JobCentre.

The BBC don't report on that as its important all these people struggling.   How about do a panarama on all the people dieing on the WCA.  No they won't do that.

Funded by the Government paid for by us.  They really need to work out where their loyalties lie.

Subscription based service is the only way the BBC can be independent.
