The BBC's coverage of the London Olympics has notched up a hat-trick of nominations at the Bafta TV awards - one fewer than the sitcom which spoofed the games, Twenty Twelve.
Danny Boyle's acclaimed Olympics opening ceremony and the BBC's coverage of "super Saturday" – when Jessica Ennis, Mo Farah and Greg Rutherford all won gold for Great Britain – are both nominated in the sport and live event category.
The opening ceremony is also nominated for the Radio Times audience award, voted for by members of the public.
Last summer's sporting spectacle also provided Channel 4 with a nomination for its Paralympics coverage in the sport and live event category.
