SYDNEY 2000 / SUMMER OLYMPIC GAMES

Today

When it is 1 p.m. Saturday in Los Angeles, it is 7 a.m. Sunday in Sydney, Australia.

September 16, 2000

Sydney is 18 hours ahead of Pacific Daylight Time, meaning it will be midday in Australia when The Times goes to press daily. The Times, with a staff of 16 in Sydney, will be uniquely positioned to report on many events on a same-day basis--and often ahead of those events appearing on television. NBC, which owns U.S. broadcast rights, has decided to show all events on tape delay over its network and cable affiliates. Live coverage on the Canadian Broadcast Co. (CBC) is available only on the old, large C-band satellite-dish systems.
