Olympics opening ceremony

Danny Boyle's opening ceremony for the London Olympics has been in the news today, as there was a practice run last night. It turns out that three people I know attended the event, but they've promised to #savethesecret although I did a search on #ruinthesecret and found a few pictures.
It's no surprise that the ceremony is based around a pastoral view of England.
The Evening Telegraph used the headline 'Farm Olympics' when the first pictures were released.

Now Henry Porter, writing in the Observer says that the event made him fall in love with our landscape all over again.
This may be a resource that is worth deconstructing once it's over, in terms of its description of our landscape...

It's certainly an interesting Cultural Geographical event...
