From the dawn of the English country side to the rise in the industrial revolution to the the unity of the Olympic games...
James bond meets the real queen of England and who can say they hate the queens corgis
followed by epic helicopter flight over London followed by James Bond & the Queen jumping out a helicopter
Mike Oldfield & Great Ormond Street Hospital segment was great and atmosphere livened up and told a great story, j.k. Rowling was a good guest and and the dream like world created was great and the use of classic characters throughout such as Mary Poppins, the child catcher and the classic view of the NHS staff made a great show segment. Chariots of fire was a moving segment and Rowan Atkinson was just brilliant the comedy just transported my mind back to the old comedies i use to watch with my parents, the cinematography was just perfect on the beach scene and i thought the segment was a good representation of our comedy past.
Why did they use a new mini (we all know they are made in Germany by BMW) they should have used an OLD ENGLISH MINI...
The digital age representation was great and the British music used was a good look into the way Britain has grown with music throughout the key moments of our lives supplied by artists such as:
Eric Clapton, The Who, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Dave Clark 5, Showaddywaddy, David Bowie, Queen, Johnny Rotten, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Eurythmics, Amy Winehouse, Petshop Boys, Bee Gees and the many others,
Plus the inventor of the World Wide Web: Tim Berners-Lee (Thank You So Much...)
The videos along with the music was great and the lighting was great and added so much to the show, the videos were great and show so much of Britain in what we offer to the world as a country.
I played the usual game of guess the flag before they announce the country name... you should try it its fun...
The music played as the teams entered the stadium was great as it gave a energetic feel to the show but the thing that i liked the most was the moments of silence as it showed much respect for the people that are no longer with us, the whole ceremony included everyone and tried to incorporate all walks of life. Overall the story telling elements of the ceremony was magical and made a great show to rival the past Olympics.
The whole show was perfect and shows what Britain can do...
The beacon was the most graceful and beautiful thing i have ever seen, the beacon is the focal point to unify the world and to showcase the industry's of Britain.
I just think the ceremony was a great explosion of the best representation of Britain and the whole event was the just a magical thing to watch.
BUT THERE WAS NO DOCTOR WHO..... WHY THE HELL WAS THERE NO DOCTOR WHO....
