Danny Boyle, 56,  Academy Award winner for movie of the year, Slumdog Millionaire directed the opening ceremonies at the Olympics in London 2012, and did a smashing job.

If you missed it, you missed the best part of the opening ceremonies, it is here for the time being.

There is no way of knowing how long this video will stay up on YouTube but if you missed it, it was the best part.

Boyle did an amazing job as expected and deserves an award for his efforts.

How did Danny Boyle ever get  Queen Elizabeth II, 86,  to ever agree to this little fantasy?

It was truly memorable and exciting up to the moment when (it appeared) the Queen was jumping from the Royal Chopper. (it was a stunt double, of course)
