Only next year to the London 2012 Olympics, just a little information about the event.

The first 74 locations on the London 2012 Olympic torch relay route, which will start at Land's End, have been revealed.

The route, which covers every nation and region in the UK and includes island visits, will see the Olympic torch travel 8,000 miles (12,800 km).

A search for 8,000 "inspirational torchbearers" will begin at 1100 BST, the London Olympics' organisers said.

They plan to publicise further route details later this year.

The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Locog) said the Olympic Flame would come within a one-hour journey of 95% of people in the UK.

The torch will leave Land's End, Cornwall, on the morning of Saturday 19 May 2012 - the day after it arrives in the UK from Greece.

During the 70-day torch relay, it is expected to pass through towns and cities including Bristol, Cardiff, Liverpool, Belfast, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Newcastle, Manchester, Sheffield, Nottingham, Oxford, Southampton and Dover.
