I was watching the ceremony with my family but, at the risk of being lynched, we were underwhelmed to say the least. The only bit I really liked was Mr Bean on the organ. Oh well, the Olympics are about the sporting events anyway.

My daughter rang me half way through. She was at Womad watching Jimmy Cliff. Much better idea. Best bit has been the queens face!

Well I for one thought it was great apart from Paul McCartney ...

I think Danny did a fantastic job, with great visuals and sound. I was worried it was going to be another millenium dome evening. But he proved me well wrong.

Will have to see if I can find some highlights somewhere. We've been in Liverpool all day, just got home. Been to the Philharmonic Hall
this evening

Who lit the torch? Someone exciting?

I have it recorded on Sky+ so can whizz past any boring bits. We went to see Batman instead - perfect timing, just a third full thus reducing the wrapper rustling andphone fiddling irritations to a minimum

Definitely, and I'm not ashamed to say I had tears in my eyes when I saw the cauldron lit, it was absolutely stunning!
