OK – first of all, the Olympics were held in Moscow in 1980 when it was at the centre of the Soviet Union and under the thumb of President Brezhnev. It all seems a long, long time ago now – but you didn’t dream it. Every Mayday and in November, we used to see huge Communist parades in front of the Kremlin celebrating international workers day and the Russian revolution respectively. A lot of that style was translated into the opening ceremony for the Olympics, which by today’s standards looks remarkably stilted. But back then – we were all amazed by that synchronized stuff in the crowds. It seemed hi-tech by 1980 standards!
