Am here with Lizzie and Phil. Lizzie is putting on the jetpack for a special moment in the show...

I don't like how CTV just picked up some crappy TSN reporters for the pre-show, could have done better.

Ok, the people you see in what looks like painters overalls are known as the mechanics.

They look after walking the clouds around and their main roll is getting the audience involved and guiding them when there are audience participation scenes.

Pakistani media is giving double covarge to this opening ceremony as compare to the focus Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008 had.

I hope people outside the UK are getting the shots of the stadium before the show. The BBC has a 2 hour preview show and the shots of the park are absolutely spectacular.

That surprises me really! Then again, I guess we have a large Pakistani community here in th UK? Do you know why?

I found a live stream for all you other Americans!! It's BBC Sport

http://www.vipbox.tv...eam-online.html

Fantastic find! That's great even for me as German, because ZDF won't start it's broadcast before 9.30 CET, that's only half an hour before the ceremony starts. This way, I can watch the pre-show and don't have to watch the crime thriller ZDF is broadcasting right now. ;)

Small errors. They said 202 nations when its 204 after showing the flags and incorrectly said Pistorious will compete in the 4x100 (when its the 4X400)

Yes probably plus London has more enhanced international identity as an western high style city.
