Olympic opening ceremony

The whole show was first rate. It managed to blend the cultural with the historical, the energentic and uplifting with the sombre and contemplative. The show was made particulalry memorable by including some really whacky, mental content (say, for example a Queen parachuting in to the stadium out of a helicopter, oh and with James Bond alomgside for company). And it all worked! Danny Boyle absolutely nailed the first theatrical piece, where the audience is provided with a synopsis of the ingredients that went into making Britain what it is today. A high bar has been set.
