Thank you for your kind comment. I voiced at the time that I wondered if the significance of the story would be understood in the wider world. Indeed a BBC presenter commented likewise this morning. Perhaps it was too "Brit" and too obscure.Wow! That was Spectacular.
Very Brit indeed !.Perhaps it was too "Brit" and too obscure.
Hi Paix, I did not miss the GOSH / JM Barrie link, my S-i-L worked there !.@Buzby, you missed the important Peter Pan and Great Ormond Street Hospital ...
Genuine "don't know", but is it this:Having just watched most of it again, there is still one part I don't get.
It's the part that starts with an orange disk, lots of smoke, and dancers dressed in black.
Then there is a man and a boy who dance around a bit before joining the other dancers.
Does it mean something, or was it just a 'performance' ?.
The US commentators had done their homework and mentioned the connection.@Buzby, you missed the important Peter Pan and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) connection and it's significance that kicked off the NHS part of the performance.
Pop down to the "Copyright status" part of the wiki link for the interesting bit about JM Barrie's contribution and the regard that that gift has been held in for many decades.
Yes, and over 50% of our winners come from private schools, but only 7% of the UK students are in private schools.Looking at the medal table, the brits have more medals per head of population than any other country.
How's that for playing with statistics.
Was trying to think that through whilst watching - didn't get very far. 230 miles of cable still only equate to less than 6 yards of cable per panel.Not sure what hardware, software and protocols used were but it all added up to being pretty impressive for something so simple in principle.
