Enjoy the show!

And best of luck to your brother. Which sport does he compete in? Let us know how he gets on. I have a colleague whose sister-in-law is part of the sitting volleyball team.

I do hope there more to this. It's been ridiculously short given the fact the athletes are already coming out. I have totally forgotten it all already!

^^ agree. Maybe more to come after.... Shame C4 couldnt hold off the adverts until after the opening ceremony. I realise they are a profit making organisation, but surely for once they could have held off!

Ads during the athlete's parade :nuts:

Still. Looking on the bright side, no Paul McCartney so far.
Only during the 'boring' countries though

Why is the stadium decorated with drink glasses?

Just the lighting of the cauldron and raising of the paralympic flag, maybe a few speaches and that's it I think...unless this is over-running with the parade like the Olympics did...only 30mins left of the broadcast.

I hope those opening ceremony tickets were cheap. 2 hours of watching people walk/wheel themselves around a stadium. Yawn.

Channel 4 getting some stick:

24m Channel 4 ‏@C4Insider

If you’re asking about ads, we’re showing less than usual but as a commercially funded bcaster they allow us to show events like the Paras.

19m Channel 4 ‏@C4Insider

Grammar apology. FEWER ads. Not less. FEWER.

Parts are brilliant i can only imagine if they had a bigger budget it would have been incredible. I really like the story element running through the shows narrative.

Hats off to the directors certainly better than closing ceremony.

God, this opening ceremony is dull. Its neither fun nor high brow to get away with being a tad staid. Its like everything is running at half speed.

It's ok... But bed calls I think. Better than the closing ceremony but not a patch on the OOC. All very worthy and no real bad sequences but not pacey enough to hold your attention. 6/10 for me.

( I gave OOC 9/10 and OCS 3/10)

Night all.
