DISC 3
Important Note: There is some very brief picture break-up in a few scenes on this disc, caused during the recording of the live events. The scenes were not able to be fixed and it was felt that to remove the shots would have impaired the coverage more than by retaining them.

Victoria Pendleton wins stunning gold
Andy Murray’s emotional victory
Ben Ainslie wins historic 4th gold

Exclusive Opening Ceremony Extras:

Isles of Wonder Deconstructed

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.

Nimrod

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

This ambitious section celebrates the amazing technology that makes us dance, helps us communicate, commute, remember, and dream and most of all fall in love.

DISC 5
Closing Ceremony

The London 2012 Olympic Games ended in style with a celebration of music and sporting achievement, created by Kim Gavin.
