    After the pre-show build up, the actual ceromony as such will only last 40 mins or so at the plateau but there's the Liverpool musical at the arena at the weekend - The greatest story ever told.

    The idea being that both the oldest peoples meeting place (the plataeu) and the newest (the arena) will feature.

    There were a flood of calls to the Roger Phillips phone-in yesterday bemoaning that we'd missed the boat with this not going out live, something about artists rights etc.

    However, Phil Redmond came on and gave a very detailed and satisfactory explaination as to why, by and large this wasn't happening though CBS are doing it, to do with the logistics and companies preferring an edited version with all the highlights and none of the waiting around bits. Apparently over 200 companies have applied for rights to screen parts of it which he said is for more than the likes of the world known F.A. Cup final.

    Granada TV are showing highlights at 1045pm on Sunday, as well part of the arena concert. Sky News and BBC 24 are expected to show large chunks of it tonight according to todays Daily Post

    Callers to the phone-in today say that already the BBC are on site reporting it on the news, but sadly showed Shard Close, Crocky and mentioned the shootings again as the (dig in the ribs) as the caller called it.

    Also ABC and CBS are giving us a good go with a Ringo interview live from Liverpool.

    I may even be able to wangle my way into the student flats in the old hotel facing St. Georges - just waiting on a call

    Party time...........

    Every programme on BBC Radio 2 has mentioned the launch to-night, it has been very positive and there has been lots of Liverpool music. There has been mentions on the news as well.

    I put the times for Granada up last night under the "Film and Television" section. Just realised it's actually on BBC2. My eyes must be going.

    So who's going tonight? I for one. They want you to take a torch. And St Georges Hall, the Walker and World Museum will be open after the show - might be a good place to hang out whilst the crowds disperse.

    I hope that all those of you who get to go there tonight have a wonderful time.

    Theres a lot of envious people who wish they could be there amongst you, I'm one of them.

    So keep warm, hold your torches high and I hope to see you when the highlights are shown.

    Cheers!

    Didn't get any photos. I know I should of went earlier but I didn't realise that until I got there, sometimes stuff In my mind doesn't kick In till It happens. Plus my aspergers Is a nightmare when having to speak.

    Went down but was so crowed and I have difficulties communicating so I just used my size to walk through when I was being squashed and stupid families using the baby excuse to swear at people to move was disgusting.

    There was chavs just standing around being annoying to get through too.

    I just got fed up and once walking through people felt better when some tripped when I bumped my way through.

    They should of held It somewhere else, city centre streets get too crowed for moving around even when emergency services need to.

    I feel like being a pushy annoying person, these kind of people seem more privileged or the non popular ones still get their way.

    Ringo's song Is **** too. He's only popular and liked because he's a Beatle. Liverpool won't acknowledge other musical talent for events or the capital of culture unless there a Beatle.

    Not being funny here either but there was Insane amounts of overweight people too. It's becoming another America over here with that stuff.

    The Capital Of Cultures bull****, there only looking after the popular places that are already looked after.

    Why do those ragamuffins have to be so loud?! I ended up on the St John's carpark.

    Thanks, Kev! That was great. Having trouble though accessing the other URL with Ringo's single which only seems to go to a pic of the man from the Dingle.

    I went up St Johns carpark too for a bit but too many people there to get to the front to get shots.

    Funny when people climbed up the posts that had the St Johns Carpark sign on, would of been fun to sit up there but would of been told to get down.

    That event was too small for the city centre I reckon.

    Couldn't they of used a huge park to launch 08 like Princess park since Ringo's from Toxteth?
