The BBC will make two short films to be screened during the opening ceremony.
Titled the ‘Isles of Wonder’, the first film will be screened at the beginning of the ceremony with the second one following later.
It has also been revealed today that the opening ceremony will be transformed into a ‘British countryside’ to recreate scenes from across the land.
“We’re delighted to be able to contribute to an Opening Ceremony that aims to show the best of Britain to the world. The opportunity to make films that will be seen by over a billion people globally was one we couldn’t resist.” – Roger Mosey, Director for BBC London 2012
The London 2012 games officially launch on Friday 27th July.
