    Documentary Vancouver 2010 Stories of Olympic Glory

    This was the final Bud Greenspan Olympic film. It's on COZI TV today at 11 AM Central time. Should have some skating in it. Not sure as I haven't seen it before. But a great review just days before 2014 Winter Games begins.

    oops that should be 2/2. Feb. 2

    The first two hour docum. features a number of sports and includes OGM pairs skater Shen/ Zhao. It has interviews with them and shows partial skates.

    The second two hour documentary features a segment with OGM ice dancers Jayne Torvill and Chris Dean. There is a cute sighting of Chris on duty in his policeman's uniform. It also has some brief film of their early 1980s routines and goes thru to the '94 games. It also has a segment on the 1988 battle of the Carmens in Ladies skating. It shows annoyingly little of Canadian silver medalist, Liz Manly, who was so fantastic in her long program. They basically just show her final pose at center ice.

    This is on digital channel Cozi which I think is part of NBC somehow.

    Also interestingly the man chosen as USA flag bearer for these games is profiled along with the development of the sport, Nordic combined, in the US. It has ski jumping and cross country skiing combined. This is his sixth Olympics.

    THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 6 at noon central time
