Here we are watching the opening ceremony!
I feel so proud and humbled to be British with this barmy event. I’m not going to go on about it – if you saw it you don’t need me to tell you about it – and if you missed it – well here is a little to whet your appetite –
Jerusalem (yup – we were crying right there…!), the Queen parachuting in, Michael Fish, the forging of the Olympic rings, Mr Bean, the AMAZING Olympic cauldron, the Elvis get up worn by our team, the trampolining beds, the floating clouds, the national anthem (including verse two!), the Archers, Texting and Mary Poppins.
Go, go now and watch it…..
The version we saw in the US was heavily edited by NBC, but even so it was magnificent and made me proud to be British too. The choice of aspects of British history and culture to highlight was brilliant.
I heard – what was that all about then???
The only ‘miss’ we felt was Doctor Who – we had hoped he might light the torch…. well there’s always the closing ceremony…!
I loved the show!
Its really an amazing show! Love it! Thanks for the share!
