Well, that was pretty amazing. With something like an opening ceremony, it’s difficult to please everybody. Danny Boyle, though, did an absolutely fantastic job, and that is a view held by the massive majority. The stadium looked absolutely beautiful, and, although I loved the green, the industrial revolution sequence that tore up the grass was such a spectacle. James Bond jumping from a helicopter with the Queen seems to be a lot of peoples highlight. The NHS segment, which I feared was going to be unbelievably cheesy, was brilliant. Caught up on the post-athletes section this morning, and it was amazing. The seven young athletes lighting the cauldron was inspired, and the cauldron itself – the way it formed inparticular – was just stunning. Really incredible stuff – proud to be British.28 July 2012
