    Wonder if it will be available as a digital download... DVDs are so 2005 haha ;D

    But definitely a must purchase.. I missed some of the best moments, and so want to have this at least.

    The Thames is “liquid history”. Discover how the visual effects team created a thrilling animated journey up the river from its source, to the Olympic stadium itself - passing sights real and imaginary.


    The sound of the shipping forecast and billowing blue sheets transform our meadow into “an isle of wonder”, to the stirring sound of Elgar’s Nimrod, as played by the London Symphony Orchestra’s On Track project.

    Frank Turner in the Green and Pleasant Land

    Frank Turner’s acoustic songs performed in the stadium perfectly captured the atmosphere of a long summer evening.

    Thanks Tim Projection House
