I was at a party the night of the Olympic opening ceremonies, so I watched it later. (Ah, "Flower of Scotland" sung by tiny children.) As a St. Andrews alum, the "Chariots of Fire" inspired scene was a special notice to me since it originally took place on West Sands in St. Andrews. (Yes, it is not uncommon to see students on the beach humming the "Chariots of Fire" theme while running in slow mo.) Well, it appears that they filmed the Olympic ceremony version there also, and student Phil Goose has an account of his participation here.
