There’s an upside and a downside to having the Olympics come to your city. Londoners are experiencing first-hand what it means to their personal lives, their environment, and their freedom. In this powerful 35-minute documentary, Matthew Homer of the London Olympic Radio Project explores both the positive and negative impacts of the 2012 London Olympics upon the residents of East London, where the Olympics are being held.
In particular, the documentary addresses the impact of the Olympics on the local environment, the local sports clubs, and the local people, many of whom have been forced to make significant sacrifices including being removed from their homes for the sake of the promised “Olympic Legacy” that the Olympics will bring to London. You’ll find out firsthand what some Londoners think about the Olympics coming to their city.
