I don't know exactly why I love the trailer for the BBC's Olympic coverage so much. Perhaps it's the music composed by Damon Albarn, the second best songwriter of the Britpop 'era' (who's the best? Need you ask?). Perhaps it's the gorgeous animation. Perhaps it's just that it's so different to the none-more-literal shite that TV stations usually go in for (I'm looking at you, RTE) - slo-mo out-of-context shots of faceless athletes, music either ickily sentimental or, more usually, vacuously bombastic (this has what sounds very much like an 'eighties drum machine in it). Anyway, it's both amazing and great, and makes the almost unbearable gap between that programme where people buy some cheap crap in a flea market and sell it at auction and one of the other programmes where people buy some cheap crap in a flea market and sell it at auction quite pleasurable.
