  5. London 2012: Isles of Wonder is Olympic ceremony theme London 2012's opening ceremony is to be called Isles of Wonder, organisers have revealed six months ahead of the Games. The ceremony's artistic director, Danny Boyle, revealed the name at a press briefing alongside creative director Stephen Daldry. Boyle said it would be about a land that has been poisoned by industrial legacy and the recovery of that land. It is anticipated the opening ceremony on 27 July will be watched by one billion TV viewers. Advertising experts estimate this is worth up to £5bn in airtime exposure. Bolye, who is best known for directing Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire and Trainspotting, said they had commissioned the biggest ringing bell in Europe to hang at one end of stadium and ring at opening of Games. It is to be inscribed with a quote from Shakespeare's The Tempest: "Be not afeard, the isle is full of noises". Boyle said he wanted people to hear it "for hundreds of years". 'Fabulous opportunity' Talking about all four Olympic ceremonies Daldry said they were the "greatest shows on earth and the task was enormous." He said they represent one journey to the end looking at who we are, who we were and who we would wish to be. More detailed information will be released about the artists in April and the content of opening ceremony in June, he added. At the opening ceremony Boyle will again be collaborating with electronic musical duo Underworld whose 'Born Slippy' featured in Trainspotting. The pair have been named musical directors of the three-hour ceremony. Some 20,000 performers are being sought for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. London 2012 ceremonies Cast of 15,000 volunteers 23,000 costumes 12 hours of music 60 musicians 15,000 sq m of staging 13,000 propos one million watt PA system with 500 speakers They will be drawn from members of the public and more than 10,000 have already been auditioned. Speaking earlier on Friday about the challenges that lay ahead in the next six months, London 2012 Chairman Seb Coe said it was a fabulous opportunity but a "heavy weight of responsibility". Locog chief executive Paul Deighton said it would be all about attention to detail as well as building the excitement and helping people to be a part of what will be "the greatest thing this city has seen in their lifetimes". A ceremony was also being held marking the handover of the Athletes' Village, on the Olympic Park in Stratford, from the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) to Locog. The 2,818 flats will now be fitted out to cater for 16,000 athletes and officials from 200 countries.
