Beijing Olympics News

Music producer Quincy Jones has joined movie directors Steven Spielberg (Jaws, Jurassic Park, Saving Private Ryan) and Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) as a consultant on the opening and closing ceremonies at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Jones, the producer of the charity anthem "We are the World" and whose film scores include In Cold Blood and The Color Purple will compose an original song for the occasion around the official theme "One World, One Dream."


Several Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) tombs have been discovered this year, the latest only this week, as construction work continues on the 9,000-capacity Beijing Olympic shooting venue, the Beijing Shooting Range Hall in the Shijingshan District of the capital.
