Doctor Who Segment Cut From Olympic Opening Ceremony

According to this leaked playlist for the Olympic Opening Ceremony, reported in the Telegraph, Ron Grainer's original Doctor Who Theme was meant to be part of the opening ceremony. Along with segments based on Coronation Street and Monty Python, the Doctor Who section was cut due to time constraints. The vworp vworp sound of the TARDIS was included in the middle of a Queen song, but the rest of the Doctor Who section was unfortunately lost in the annals of time. It's shame this was cut, but that aside the Ceremony was incredible.
