Outliers was, to borrow a Britishism, gobsmacked to find that a showpiece segment of the opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games celebrated … healthcare. Dancing nurses and doctors, children bouncing on beds. All in tribute to the National Health Service. During the segment, the beds, fitted with LED lighting, were moved to spell out “NHS” and “GOSH,” for Great Ormand Street Hospital, a children's hospital that's the beneficiary of royalties from J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan.
Now it turns out some of the props used in that segment aren't going to waste. The 320 beds that director Danny Boyle used in a dance sequence showing British nurses tending to sick children will be used in real hospitals in Tunisia.
