Programme 5: Heritage
Whichever city in the UK that any of us visit as tourists, it's 'Heritage' is always part of its attraction. London is a city where Shakespeare wrote and performed, where monarchs have ruled and from where empires have been run and perhaps, most importantly, London will soon be the only city to have hosted 3 Olympic Games. We feature some of London's most recognisable and important landmarks, including historic palaces, sporting and creative heritage and modern architecture.

Programme 9: London's Transport System Ready for the 2012 Olympic Games
In any Olympic City, the transport infrastructure falls under the spotlight. This film showcases how London has embraced the challenge of moving residents, visitors and athletes around during the Games.
This is the third time that the UK has hosted the Olympics and London has promised that 2012 will be known as the Public Transport Games.
We look at how 1948 Olympic Athletes got to and from their events, and the massive investment that has been put into improving the transport infrastructure in time for this year's Olympics.
Programme 10: London Legacy
Legacy has always been at the heart of the London 2012 Games project; it was integral to the bid, a key aspect of the big build approach, and now, as we enter the final stages of preparations for the Games it remains one of the key aims.
In this film we look at the dramatic regeneration already to be seen as a direct result of the Games, and look forward to the legacy of opportunities they will create.

Most cultures can be defined by their music, and with a rich heritage of classical, pop, rock, dance and jazz, the UK takes centre place on the world music stage. In this film we visit iconic London sites Abbey Road Studios and the Dublin Castle and see what music is on offer across the UK during the London 2012 Festival.
