What a huge disappointment this dvd set is. I doubt this really is the complete opening ceremony, because I remember a longer artistic program. Disc 1 has approx. 20 min. of introduction and then 1 hr. of the beautiful program I remember. Disc 2 is mainly the march of the athletes, plus the all to brief lighting of the flame.
Be forewarned: The constant NBC logo is hugely annoying. Located in the top right of the screen, it is designed with a neon gold ripple which completely detracts from the program.
Such a shame - this program was gorgeous, and the production, a mammoth accomplishment. Too bad there isn't an acceptable dvd currently available. I'd really like to own it.
