BBC Coverage of the Commonwealth Games 2014

The BBC has announced details of its coverage of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Presenters including Hazel Irvine, Gary Lineker, Clare Balding, Gabby Logan, Ken Bruce, Susanna Reid, Bill Turnbull and Mishal Husain will host coverage over the Games’ 11-day run.

Lineker and Balding will present the opening and closing ceremonies which will be broadcast live from the Celtic Park and Hampden, with commentary from Irvine and Huw Edwards.

Once the Games begin, coverage will be aired from the BBC’s base in Pacific Quay in Glasgow, as well as special events from the channel’s pop-up venue BBC @ The Quay.

Coverage will kick-off in the morning during BBC Breakfast, before Husain presents the morning’s action until midday.

Jason Mohammad will host from midday to 3pm, followed by Irvine until 7pm before Lineker takes over presenting duties for the evening coverage.

As with the Olympics, BBC Three is hoping to have an extended schedule devoted to live Games action with presenters including Dougie Vipond, Lee McKenzie, Manish Bhasin and Dan Walker.

Meanwhile, BBC Radio 5 Live’s lineup will include Nicky Campbell, Mark Pougatch, Eleanor Oldroyd and Fred MacAulay.

Established BBC TV and radio programmes such as The One Show, BBC Breakfast, The Ken Bruce Show, A Question of Sport and Who Do You Think You Are? will all broadcast special editions from Glasgow during the tournament.

Other Commonwealth Games-related programming will include concerts, documentaries and special events, as well as dedicated content across all BBC Radio Networks.

***In the same way the BBC provided 24 Live Streams for 2012 London Olympics, the BBC has said that it would like to broadcast 15 live streams for the 2014 Commonwealth Games
