BBC Parliament suspended for Olympic recess

Broadcasts of BBC Parliament were suspended on Freeview today, in preparation for enhanced coverage of the Olympic games. The channel's capacity will be used to provide an extra interactive stream of coverage from Beijing. Parliament is currently in recess, but broadcasts continue online and via other digital platforms. The channel will return to Freeview on August 24. Meanwhile, according to EPG listings, the Community Channel will also be off-air between August 9 and August 25 for the same reason.
