The BBC plans to cover every sport from every venue during the entire London 2012 Olympic Games. With more than 2,000 hours of live sport that means the pressure on the IT department to ensure that everything works will be enormous.
In this CW500 Club video, the top IT executive at the BBC, chief technology officer John Linwood, talks to Computer Weekly editor in chief Bryan Glick about what is perhaps the most ambitious coverage of a sporting event to date, as well as discussing the ongoing IT transformation at the broadcaster.
