London 2012, Opening Ceremony

27 July, 2012 at 19:00 (GMT+01:00)

By Christine Blachford

The buildup to this Olympics Games has seemed endless, but it has finally arrived, and with it comes the Opening Ceremony. Film director Danny Boyle has been overseeing the spectacle about to unfold before us and although I've personally tried to avoid spoilers, I do know there has been talk of sheep and rain clouds. There will be the lighting of the flame, no doubt plenty of dancing and perhaps even an athlete or two. Grab your snacks and settle in as the world tunes in to the opening of the 2012 Summer Games.
