The BBC has today announced that it will broadcast some live Olympics coverage in 3D, including the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as a highlights package at the end of each day.

The coverage, as part of a 3D trial by the broadcaster, will be available on BBC’s HD channel.

Kim Shillinglaw, head of BBC 3D, said: “We have always said we believe some of 2012 should be captured in 3D, and we’re delighted to confirm our offer to audiences in the UK, providing them with a new way of getting close to some of the key moments from the London 2012 Olympic Games.”
