With the clock ticking towards the opening ceremony of the 16th Asian Games, here is where I will tell you of the goings-on at Haixinsha Island.

I'm watching from the TVUPlayer feed of CCTV-1, the main Chinese national TV network.
TVU Player can be downloaded here.

Oh, and while this is going on, you can express your thoughts about this - what eill be a magnificent opening for the 16th Asiad!

The website says 8 hours to go, but I'm assuming the ceremony should be about to start, confused!!!

Looking thru eurosport this morning couldn't see any coverage of the Asian games at all this time
MANCHESTER 2002 - THE XVII COMMONWEALTH GAMES
LONDON 2012 - THE XXX OLYMPIC GAMES
GLASGOW 2014 - THE XX COMMONWEALTH GAMES

LONDON 2012 - the time of our lives!

I am watching it live on national TV. The opening fireworks could easily rival Beijing 2008!

They are about to host the PRC flag. The countdown was done via fireworks climbing up the Guangzhou TV Tower followed by a flood of fireworks all over!

The anthem is over. Now for the first item.

Show part one is called "Dream".

Eight giant screens show animation...which then transforms into a starry screen with a kid floating across on a boat shaped like a leaf.

A water ballet happens as the stage becomes flooded. Huge water fountains rising several stories high.

The opening ceremony has just started with a countdown and fireworks from the adjacent Guangdong Radio and TV tower.

The Chinese flag then entered the stadium by two children (a boy and a girl) who turned it over the six guards of the People's Liberation Army - Guard of Honor (PLA-GOH) who in turn trooped the flag unfurled (goose-stepping) to the flagpole, where they wrapped up the flag and raised it to the singing of the national anthem.
