Dear, oh dear, oh dear. If you missed it, you missed nothing. The climbing consisted of two lots of prussiking and one tyrolean. I did, however learn something about the difference between Romanesque (Norman) and Gothic architecture. The intro showed some quite modern buildings as well, so the series probably won't appeal to history buffs as a whole either.

Yeah, it turned out to be pretty disappointing. Still preferable to watching the 50th repeat of Grand Designs or the other alternative repeats in that timeslot. Looks like the best alternative was The Drum on ABC News 24.

I'm pretty sure we haven't had a random skywhale flyby, they've just photoshopped it onto Araps.

On that note....I stayed at Cam and Traceys a couple of weeks ago and when I was leaving someone was flying one of those plane/parachute things around on the Mitre side of the Mt for a while. Was cool to watch.

The YouTube video referenced in the news item would seem to suggest the balloon's maiden flight definitely occurred within sight of the Mount.

The lady who owns the baloon has relatives near the mount. Rumor has it she's from Hamilton.

The balloon and the view are illuminated by suns in different locations.

So did anybody actually see this balloon?? Even the manager at the Nati Lake Caravan Park was talking about the balloon, but then she admitted she only saw it in the paper. Hmmmmmmm....

There was a large party camped in the paddock beneath Tiger Wall (Sudholdz's?) for about a week right when this was happening. Any connection?

From reading this article I gather the balloon is supposed to be some kind of flying whale: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-05-09/is-it-a-bird-is-it-a-plane-no-its-a-skywhale/4679676

When then doors it have giant, pendulous breasts on it where the wrongs should be?
