The 2012 Bad Picture Quiz of the Year

2012 was a year to live long in the memory. The Olympics, the Paralympics, the Diamond Jubilee and Hurricane Sandy all competed for the attention of the cameraman and woman. As the year drew to a close glossy journals padded out their pages with gorgeous photographs that perfectly captured the moment. But, for everyone of those perfect pictures there are at least 100 stills which never saw the light of day, being doomed to be deleted before they made the transfer from camera to PC. This quiz is a tribute to those terrible pictures we all take thousands of every year.

Pictured below are 4 of the major events of the year. Can you identify which once in a lifetime moment they depict? Answers at the bottom of the post. Good luck!

Question 1 - This picture was taken after one of the greatest nights in British sporting
history - what had just happened?

Question 2 - My Mum took this snap just before a great ceremonial occasion.
Which occasion did her camera miss?

Question 3 - A tableau of one of the TV hits of the year - created by E.
Which programme is it?

Question 4 - In this picture The Signs of Spring struggle to get a view of what??

PS The answers are: Q1 is from "Super Saturday" - my parents were lucky enough to be in the Olympic Stadium on the night Mo Farah, Jess Ennis and Greg Rutherford struck gold. Q2 - the Royal Regatta on the Thames. Q3 - "The Voice" was massive in our household during April - until the auditions finished. Q4 - Waiting for the Olympic flame.
