Robert Rogerson celebrates the success of Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games, arguably the second largest multi-sport event in the world attracting more than 4000 athletes from the 71 nations and territories across the globe. For 12 days in mid-2014, the city of Glasgow basked in some of the hottest temperatures of the year, the greatest media attention it has ever received, and in the accolade of being the Host City for the XX Commonwealth Games. Across the city, sporting events and a wide range of international cultural acts and festivities made for a special, unique occasion that was truly embraced by Glaswegians and the tens of thousands of visitors who flocked to the city from around the world. Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games: behind the scenes captures the very best moments, recalling the highlights in sport and culture, providing not only a photographic record but also looking behind the images and headlines at the complexities of running such a vast organisational enterprise.
