Opening ceremony tensions boiling over at OlympicsLondon: Olympic organizers say there are tensions between director Danny Boyle and the London Games broadcasting company over the opening ceremony.

The Oscar-winning director of "Slumdog Millionaire" has been forced to trim parts of next Friday`s ceremony and is negotiating with Olympic Broadcasting Services about camera position in the Olympic Stadium.

London organizing committee spokeswoman Jackie Brock-Doyle says "there are creative tensions ... The discussion is where cameras are going."


Seats have been removed to accommodate Boyle`s additional cameras, although tickets for them hadn`t been sold. James Bulley, the director of venues, says Boyle is "very keen to make sure that the coverage of the opening ceremony was filmed not from a sports standpoint."
