I'm now a little behind you all because I had to pause it. Woops. Quite unusual start.

Anyone know of a radio commentary of this?

Doesn't seem to be on 5 Live ....

Meanwhile, I lke how the projection floor in the stadium is actually sand !

And then came the commercial breaks......:angry:

That's me switched off.

And now I'm bombing TVNZ FB page with abuse.

And by virtue of having more than one creative segment, it's already better than Glasgow :ph34r:

I thought TVNZ was ad-free? Whatever, VPN & pretend you're British. Can't believe anyone still doesn't do that. 

THEY REMEMBERED TASMANIA!!

Love the gopro didgeridoo :P

I have a suspicion that I'd be getting really really annoyed if I had the commentary switched on. This is very leftfield and contemplative stuff.

TVNZ On Demand is live but I wanted the Alternative Commentary.

Very atmospheric. Getting a feel of the 7/7 segment from London but bigger & more fitting to the theme so far.

I've got to cut out...I've got an early start in the morning - The flow of the Ceremony has been ruined by TVNZ's ad coverage - And they are already trying to defend themselves on social media already... I've given them a 1 star on their Games FB page, I wont be the last.

That's a shame. I'm genuinely impressed by the actual performance so far.

Had to pause it again - now I'm quite a way behind. But that was good fun in PyeongChang, being behind the chat. Speeches already?

That's subtle- the national flags are projected in the "sea" part of the central beach scene.

Also, the lions on Team England's t-shirts have their own subtlety; nice design.
