    I do hope Carla checks In to let us know what's happening.

    Yes, I remember her saying she was going along. It would be fun to hear from her.

    On a different note, I did wonder if I was watching the real thing or Hugh Bonneville in Twenty Twelve when they got the Korean flag wrong.
    They got the right one on show tonight, phew!

    Pretty spectacular opening ceremony so far

    It has to be said though, Paul should have some accompaniment, his voice isn't big enough any more to give it his all for the occasion.

    What an opening ceremony! I felt really proud of what was achieved...loved the NHS scenario and the Abide With Me scenes. I cried myself through the latter.

    Those were two wonderful scenes. Liked the James Bond clip showing the Queen jumping out the helicopter, brilliant . I enjoyed the appearance of Mr Bean, unexpected comedy in what seemed a serious moment, what Britain does best, serious matters happen all around but we still manage to maintain a sense of humour and be able to take the pee out of ourselves

    Hi Bez.... My eldest brother gt back from Paris and Is now at Box Hill... he's a real cycle nut.... ahhh Box Hill..... our parents took us for picnics there as kids.

    As for McCartney.... I nearly switched off.
    I am appalled that given this country has an abundance of young talent, they wheeled him out. Why do organisers believe we think he's a National Treasure??? Even Robbie or Elton would have rounded off a spectacular evening with some vibrancy. Hey Jude has to be the dreariest dirge the 20th century has produced and he was absolutely awful. The rest of the world must believe that's all we've got. Awful, just bloody awful.
