Featured article?[edit]

This is certainly a good article, and I'm thinking it might be deserving of featured article status. It's certainly more comprehensive than any other article about the opening ceremony on the web. Thoughts? ProhibitOnions (T) 15:57, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

I think it should be considered as well. --Another Believer (Talk) 15:52, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
I agree, this article should be considered for FA.--Dingowasher (talk) 22:59, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
That makes three votes of confidence across three calendar years. But who is brave enough to do the deed? :) Might be worth starting with a peer review... --Another Believer (Talk) 22:48, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

One mystery solved and another created..[edit]

Danny Boyle's own cut of the ceremony is showing tonight on BBC3. This has resolved the mystery of how Frankie contacts June after she loses her phone, as Danny has sensibly included the shot of June's friend handing June her phone, when Frankie calls - this shot didn't make the BBC coverage nor the ABS version on Youtube.

interestingly tonight's footage also included a very brief shot of someone standing inside the tube trains being projected onto the large house, whilst "going underground" was playing. Was this someone in particular, I wonder?

A the phone was her sisters. The tube train I have a funny feeling, although it wasn't seen particularly well, that it was Mayor Ken. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.29.187.235 (talk) 22:12, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
It was indeed Ken Livingstone. In the BBC Olympics DVD box set there is an extra of the who animated sequence of 'Thanks Tim...' which was projected onto the house, and Ken can be very easily spotted. Only appropriate he gets a reference considering the work he did to get London the Games as Mayor.--Richj1209 (talk) 13:45, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
See the Simpsons stealing first base episode surely a massive nod here or to what that episode was homaging at the end of the section (the kiss). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.18.26.26 (talk) 18:35, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

Ticket prices[edit]

Is it not an option adding the ticket prices for the opening ceremony. Price range between 20.12 - 2012 Pounds? Sander.v.Ginkel (talk) 13:16, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

Yes, if we can find a reliable source. I'm sure there's one out there...? --Demiurge1000 (talk) 21:33, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
