Olympic Summer Games Opening Ceremony (1984) (TV)

From Los Angeles, this is the original broadcast of 28 July 1984; Co-hosted by the late Peter Jennings and the immortal Jim McKay. As can be expected, this was a big deal. With the President and First Lady in attendance, there are faces galore throughout the Memorial Coliseum. Huge amounts of man-powered excitement covering the field, singers and dancers and kids and everything in strange 80s costuming. It looks to be a 90+ degree day and everyone is working overtime. This is 3 hours of goodness from over 30 summers ago.
