The US TV coverage of the Olympics opening ceremony is playing now. It started at 7.30pm several hours after the rest of the world saw it. Still, we gathered a few fellow Brits as well as our own American to stay up late to watch the as-live coverage.
We enjoyed the US commentary team exchanging their ignorance of who Tim Berners-Lee was and their disbelief as they announced, "They are actually so proud if their National Health Service that they wanted to include it in this opening ceremony!"
For my part, I thought the music selection for the journey through the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and up to the present day was impeccable.
