Extract of the XII Commonwealth Games opening ceremony as broadcast by ABC Television back in 1982. A tribute to we 6074 Brisbane school kids who put on a sensational display for the world. A tribute also to Ric Birch who directed the ceremony.

All the colour of the Games unfolded at QEII on a fine but extremely windy Thursday 30 September 1982, as more than 60,000 spectators, athletes and school children joined in Brisbane's greatest sporting spectacle.

With Australia as host, forty-six nations joined the XII Commonwealth Games.

The Games formed the platform for Brisbane to grow into an outward-looking international city which, six years later, hosted the highly successful World Expo '88.
