Danny Boyle"s "brilliantly bonkers" extravaganza does Britain proud
From the animated history lesson taking in the Industrial Revolution and the suffragette movement to the inclusion of icons such as Bond and Mr Bean, Danny Boyle”s mad “mash up” of British culture made everyone in the country stand that little bit taller and prouder.
“Made in Britain” or to give its official title The Isle of Wonders also had cameos by the Sir Kenneth Branagh, JK Rowling and, most ingeniously, the Queen.
That”s not forgetting the role of the 10,000 volunteers who gave up every weekend for two months to rehearse the show that will catapult the Slumdog Millionaire director to the status of national treasure.
