Workers at the Olympic Stadium have begun installing the set for the London 2012 Opening Ceremony.
Titled "Green and Pleasant", the scenery depicts a traditional and idyllic view of the British countryside, with a patchwork of green fields, meadows and rivers.
Real farmyard animals will feature in the production, including 70 sheep, 12 horses, 10 chickens, 10 ducks, nine geese, three cows, three sheep dogs and two goats.
Artistic Director Danny Boyle (of Slumdog Millionaire fame) says the Opening ceremony "is not a pop concert". Instead, he is trying to make it feel "like you are watching a live film being made."
