At the Stadium tonight and the Muse video started up and I noticed the first bit where the years count down was running in reverse with the years running to 2012

The the video montage starts but now it is all made up from 2012 clips. Sure it will appear online soon if it's not up already.

You mean this? http://www.eurovisionsports.tv/london2012/index.html

The music is this:

- High Contrast - The Road Goes on Forever (One Minute to Midnight Extended Mix)

cheers

Here's an interesting article about how it came to Underworld's tracks for the opening ceremony:

I love that photo of the Olympic Cauldron in your sig. Is it a frame-grab from TV or is available elsewhere?

Thanks

It's a picture by BBC - I don't know whether they grabbed it as frame from their TV broadcast or whether it's a real photograph. I found it back then on the day after the opening ceremony, when I searched for (I believe) "London cauldron" in Google Images.

This is the URL of the picture: http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/61866000/png/_61866234_mmolyflamelit.png

Has anyone come across the music to the Closing Ceremony of the Paralympics. The original music used in the ceremony, particularly at the very start pre going live and at the very end was awesome. I was there. I was probably by David Arnold I think. The paralympics closing though doesn't seem to have its own CD.
