Follow that - and they did!

It was always going to be difficult for the opening ceremony for the Paralympic games to follow the extravaganzas which had been put on at the opening and closing of the Olympics.

And yet they managed it.

The conribution from Stephen Hawking was particularly inspired, but the whole thing was brilliant.

A pity that some wretch of a TV presenter decided to conduct an interview while the main ceremony was featuring one of my favorite pieces of music - Purcell's Frost song - but the ceremony was a magnificent tribute to the human spirit and the wonder of the Universe.
