Isles of Wonder – London 2012 Opening Ceremony to re-air on BBC Three tonight!

The BBC will re-broadcast Danny Boyle’s extraordinary London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony this evening – which took place exactly 12 months ago.

This special Director’s cut version features extended highlights of the Ceremony including Rowan Atkinson’s performance with the London Symphony Orchestra, David Beckham driving a speedboat and the Queen’s `parachute’ entrance into the stadium.

The programme also reflects on the musical offerings of Paul McCartney, Emeli Sande and Arctic Monkeys, in addition to the lighting of the cauldron and memorable moments from the Athletes’ Parade.

The programme will air from 7pm – 9.30pm this evening on BBC Three..
