Quietly at Stratford




Not another visit to an English country garden.



It's the Olympic Park.


 For the Paralympic 7-a-side football
played under a sky as blue as the pitch.



And amazing goal ball, played in complete silence 
so that the blind and blindfolded players
 can hear the bells ringing in the ball.
After the ball went out of play
they played just the first few bars of this
to quieten the spectators.

  1. Good lord, Betty Hutton? I thought that song was a Bjork original. You're an education Lucille.
