Extra : 2012 Olympics BBC - Olympic Trailers

This section looks at the presentation broadcast in the lead up to the opening of the London 2012 Olympic Games on 27th July. It is principally based on a superb animation created by Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe Y&R, animated by Passion Pictures and produced by Red Bee Media. The music for the trailer - entitled 'First Steps' - was composed by Elbow and performed with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and the NovaVox gospel choir.
