While the world watchedÂ athletes go for gold at the London 2012 Olympic Games, for some the real star of the show was not on the track â€“ it was theÂ athletics stadium itself.Â In a unique series that celebrates everything colossal, National Geographic Channel presents a very special episode on Londonâ€™s Olympic Stadium as part of its immensely popular series, Megastructures, on September 27 at 10 PM.
Watch how during the London Olympics, people took their seats inside the 80,000 capacity, Â£486 million arena thatâ€™s helped to transform the previously unfancied area of East London. Those lucky enough to have a ticket entered aÂ truly world-class sports venueÂ that formed a fitting destination for the greatest show on Earth. And thatâ€™s not all: with an aim to host the greenest Games ever, Londonâ€™s eco-engineered stadium was designed to be downsized afterwards, leaving behind a customised 25,000-seat athletics arena!
One of the best rated shows on National Geographic Channel, Megastructues has captivated audiences with its fascinating approach of going behind the scenes and delving into unknown facts about some of our worldâ€™s most cherished structures. The special episode on Olympics will showcase how some 5,000 workers battled freak weather conditions, a derelict site and the global financial crash to realise their very own Olympic dream.
