If the opening ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics has to reflect local culture, I fear that it may be somewhat depressing, what with the high crime rate etc.
The UK also seems to lack the bright tradition/costumes etc that the Chinese, Greeks, Spanish, Japanese have displayed in recent times.

If I know you Brits you'll come up with a super show as well, probably something light and humorous.

Take it seriously, but play it lightly kind of thing, eh.

Probably. The 2002 commonwealth games ceremony was OK.

The 1991 world student games, anyone remember that? in sheffield, where the woman with the torch entered the stadium, dropped it, the flame went out, and she had to continue anyway, and pretend to light the thingy mi jig.....

What a disaster - symbolic of the WSG's legacy for Sheffield, a big compounding debt that exists 17 years later!

Of course. Young, fit athletes . As Jack Dee said, the olympic village must be one big none stop orgy, what with all those young fit athletes (with unusually high levels of hormones).
