The BBC was today officially announced as the ‘London 2012 Olympic Ceremonies Featured Film Producer’, with the news that it will make two short films for the Olympic Opening Ceremony.

With the title ‘Isles of Wonder’, the first film will be at the very opening of the show. The other will appear later.

Roger Mosey, Director, BBC London 2012, said: “We’re delighted to be able to contribute to an Opening Ceremony that aims to show the best of Britain to the world. The opportunity to make films that will be seen by over a billion people globally was one we couldn’t resist.”

Other than the films, working in partnership with Locog, the BBC will also be offering live camera feeds into the ceremony on the night.

Viewers will have to wait until the Opening Ceremony on 27 July to see the films for the first time.
