London 2012: Boyle describes opening ceremony 'meadow'

The Olympic Stadium will be transformed into the "British countryside" for the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Games on 27 July.

A cast of 10,000 volunteers will help recreate country scenes, against a backdrop featuring farmyard animals and landmarks like Glastonbury Tor.

Artistic director Danny Boyle gave the BBC's Huw Edwards a hint of what the ceremony would involve.
