Amazing...

UK orientated, I'm afraid, but this is still amazing...

I'm impressed. And would love to view the entire series. I fear it's just a bit too UK-centric to be picked up by BBC-America or one of the Discovery channels.

yes, it is a shame it seems UK-centric.
'cause I'm sure something similar, but global in scale, would be impressive...(especially with Queen Zee flying around on her jet-pack)...

Now we are much more aware of just how & what "Big Brother" is watching. You can run but you can not hide from the "Eye in the Sky."

Looks intriguing.

I remember watching the 90-minute version of a flight round Britain's coast - "The Round Britain Whizz". Every time they had to change the film, they'd conveniently fly through cloud .

That was 20 years ago; I imagine this will be rather more technically advanced.
