I'm confused, Channel 4 and 4+1 and 4seven seem to be the only ones broadcasting paralympic programmes. 4seven is only broadcasting the opening ceremony as a repeat. What other 3 channels are broadcasting the paralympics?

I have Sky and channels 450, 451 and 451 are all broadcasting the Paralympic's. I believe it is what is shown if you push the red button.

Interesting, I had no idea those channels even existed. Yet BBC extra channels were a lot easier to find.

Then I was like well duh Rachel it's obvious!

I'm watching the paralympics now, recorded it because I was out last night, Jon Snow and Grishnan Guru-Murphy seriously know how to put their foot in it!

Jon - we tried to find disabled reporters to interview the athletes so they felt comfortable.
Grishnan - are wild card athletes incredibly slow? (The paralympic athlete sat next to him did not take kindly to that)

With the BBC we had money talk, diamond talk, and 'issues'. Now we have insults from the Channel 4 team.

I love Louise's curls! The pictures of her and the Cambridges are too precious. They seem to enjoy each other's company.

Now that was a torch lighting! The first ever GB paralympian from the 1960 Rome Games, was treated at Stoke Mandeville Hospital by Dr Gutteman himself!

That's generation talking for you!

Prince Edward, Princess Astrid and Infanta Elena (they called her Princess Elena, it's all the same really) all presented medals at the Aquatic Centre in London this evening.

The only picture of Anne is this one, with no sunglasses on.
In every event picture I've seen of her, she's wearing sunglasses. Does she have sensitive eyes?

They are too cute for their own good sometimes . What I really love though is the sense that during those moments the world doesn't exist, as far as they're concerned. You pretty much feel as if you're intruding on a private moment. Love just radiates off of them.

I LOVE the image if Louise showing off her t-shirt, that is so cute. What a little lady! Love all the images, so great to see them all acting like a family. I would like to see more of this four some (5 if we are going to include Edward in it) attend another event. If we are to believe the press, it was Sophie who helped Catherine before her marriage, therefore developing a friendship. It was also said that Catherine visited Louise after she had broken her arm, but it is the press so we will never really know.

I look forward to what delights the press find for us today of family members visiting. Are William and Catherine due to attend? Sophie's visit yesterday was not on the CC, so it was a private/personal attendance, however Edward's visit was listed.

What lovely pictures! As I am a grandmother who is very fond of children I particularly appreciated Felipe and Victoria with their Mother Elena and lovely little Lady Loyise.
What charming children the three are and I am so happy to see that Louise is developing as a happy outgoing and very natural girl.

I remember reading all of that as well. I think Sophie (along with the Duchess of Cornwall) were and still are a great support system for Catherine (I would imagine it would be such for a while, especially as Catherine takes on more and more engagements). As for Her Ladyship, what a ham! Images of her make my day. She must have one heck of a personality, and at that age, getting to spend some time with the 'big' cousins is a huge deal. Of course, Catherine and William are great with kids, so there's no doubt they get along (I believe when Louise was home with her broken arm, the press wrote that she was happy to get a visit from 'Aunt Catherine' and Lupo ). I too hope that we will see all of them (including the Earl and little James) during the Games.
