08-08-08 Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony

Beijing held its formal opening ceremony today for the 2008 Summer Olympics. The ceremony, held in the National Stadium known as the Bird's Nest, was attended by thousands, and watched by millions more on television. Below are some highlights of the nearly 4-hour performance
Thousands of specks of light make
up the Olympic rings on the floor of the arena and are then magically lifted into the sky
Drums thundered, strobe lights flickered and 14,000 performers poured through the Bird's Nest stadium in a dazzling extravaganza that
offered up a vision of global harmony in line with the Games' motto "One World One Dream".
