Olympics 2012 Opening Ceremonies Set, Will You Watch?

The games have already begun, but official start of 2012 Olympic games in London is Friday, July 27. Check here for the opening weekend Olympic schedule.

If you can't leap across the pond for the Olympic games, television coverage will be aired on NBC.

The ceremony starts at 9 p.m. London time, or 4 p.m. on the East Coast. But the network is scheduled to broadcast the tape-delayed opening ceremonies at 7:30 p.m.

The opening ceremony will celebrate London with a show titled, "Isles of Wonder" directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 127 Hours). The games officially begin when the Olympic Flame ignites the cauldron.

The ceremony will kick off with the sound of the largest harmonically tuned bell in Europe, according to London2012.com. Then, the stadium will be transformed into the British countryside for the opening scene, which includes real farmyard animals. 

Former Beatle Paul McCartney is also set to perform as part of the ceremony.

For schedules and results visit the Olympic Event Schedule on the NBC Olympics website .

The corpse is apparently well http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com preserved: a young woman, lying face down, http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net shielding her face with her hands at the moment http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com of death. Her dress has risen up http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com and is tangled around her waist, her bare http://www.coachoutletaol.org legs exposed beneath.She is currently on display at http://www.coachfactoryoutetmp.com the J Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, as the first http://www.coachoutletns.com exhibit in a show that explores the ways that http://www.coachoutletstoreonlineys.net modern artists - from Francesco Piranesi http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net to Anthony Gormley - have responded http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com to history's most famous volcanic eruption. "Welcome to http://www.coachoutletonlinetc.com Pompeii," she is meant to say. "The city of the dead".
