Silver (4/16)



  1. The Blue material is to simulate the ocean...it starts on the upper tiers and then the lower seating as a special song is played.... hope that doesnt spoil things too much Also am very very excited now for the Ceremony...gonna be amazing...I hope everyone enjoys the show...and can't wait for the Torch Bearer and Cauldron to end years of speculation!!
  2. i think this is the ferris wheel in Victoria Park which sits behind the stadium....they have a load of stuff there!!
  3. No, there were no speeches however they will have to done at that end as I dont think they will want to stand on the man made hill, also the south end stage is close a lot closer to where the IOC family will be sitting
  4. The Platform is sitting in front of the Light Triangle, and there are no lights on it, all the other light boxes are around it, so it really just sits there waiting, I am sure if the cauldron was there you could see the flame from outside and most definatly from the Athletes Village as the North end is nearer to it.
  5. I would like to share my Theory of how the cauldron is lit and where it will sit. I have just returned from the dress rehersal for the opening ceremony and I have to say it is amazing!! Point 1 - However, there was one part of the stage that has been left out, on recent pictures of the stadium the centre stage has the river thames on it, during the rehersals this has never been used or seen. Point 2 - There is a platform installed above the main stage at the North End of the Stadium, it sits empty and looks wide enough and big enough for an object (maybe a cauldron) it wasn't there a few weeks ago, but it is there now. So, my theory (and this is only a theory, so please don't shoot me down) whoever the final torch bearer is will point the torch to river thames marked out on the stage and the river will burn, a river of fire, snaking its way was the thames does to a cauldron which currently is hidden under the stage at the end. The cauldron will then be lit and raised to the roof, to the platform, at the north end... As I say it is only my theory, and of course I could be so so so so so so so wrong, but thought I would share with you lovely people on here!!
  6. Wow that video looks amazing...I have to say even more excited about goin to the games and working at them now than ever before!!
  7. Maybe its a PR exercise, They say it will be ready in June 2007, What they mean is they will Finish earlier and try to explain that it has been a success.
