    Is it coincidence that the bbc havn't up-loaded the blue-ribbon events (only 1 program since last Weds, was 6-a-day) for catch-up on TV? I mean, are they getting at people that don't see the licence as value for money anymore.

    One that is most popular and celebrated, originally Blue Ribband.

    Wiki says:

    Blue Riband may be used to describe the most prestigious race or sub-category in or of a particular sport.

    In the summer Olympics, they currently are:

    In athletics, the men's 100 m running and traditionally also the men's 1500 m (or mile).
    In rowing, the Men's Eights, raced over 2000 m.
    In swimming, 100 m freestyle.

    I'm not sure what you are saying - but there are hours and hours of Olympic coverage on player.

    Specifically for your "blue ribbon" events :
    Athletics: 100m http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode...ens-100m-final
    1500m http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode...h-in-the-5000m
    Rowing: Eights http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode...turing-team-gb
    Swimming: 100m free http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07nnc2s
