|Returning in a special episode on Tuesday, 24 July at 9.30pm, Dateline is live from London in the lead up to the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. Featuring a mix of interviews and reports, Yalda Hakim presents Dateline's unique perspective of the Games before competition begins.
Video journalist Evan Williams examines the corporatisation of the Olympics, and with authorities implementing the biggest mobilisation of military and security forces in the UK since the Second World War, he also takes a closer look at the drastic security measures being taken to deliver a safe and secure Games.
The world's greatest sporting spectacle is an opportunity for the host city to be marketed to millions around the world, but it comes at a significant cost. Dateline also looks at the social and financial impact of the Olympics at a time when Britain is in the midst of a crippling economic crisis. (An SBS Production) *Series Return* CC
