What's the story?

Halcyon days.

Let me guess. Another trip down memory lane?

The London 2012 opening ceremony is getting another airing, eight years on.

Why should I watch?

Err, because it was brilliant. Trainspotting director Danny Boyle was the mastermind.

Remind me.

Well, there was David Beckham driving a speedboat carrying the Olympic torch. Bradley Wiggins ringing a bell. James Bond and the Queen jumping out of a helicopter to parachute into the stadium. Rowan Atkinson as Mr Bean doing an homage to Chariots of Fire. Paul McCartney, Emeli Sande and the Arctic Monkeys giving it laldy at the mic.

Oh, that was good. What else?

There was a fantastic section – now very timely – that paid tribute to the National Health Service, founded the year of the previous London Olympic Games in 1948.

As Mike Oldfield performed versions of Tubular Bells and In Dulci Jubilo, some 600 dancers, all of whom were NHS staff, along with 1,200 hospital volunteers, entered the stadium.

A giant baby's head in the centre of the arena celebrated the Scottish pioneers of obstetric ultrasound imaging.
