Beautiful scenery and flora. Nice visuals and aurals. I kept having to pause it due to the pace of the fades. About the time I wanted to soak in what I was seeing, it was moving on to another segment. Still very enjoyable. Btw, what was that archaic structure that looked like some sort of cannon?

Edit: Never mind, Google says it was the world's biggest telescope for 75 years. Quite a thingy.

Correct Birr was once the world's biggest telescope. Today it also is home to the Irish segment of a VLA radio telescope. Birr is also associated with Turbine invention and photography. There is a science centre there. Lots to see !

Just think of what the Kings in days of old would have given for the opportunity to peek over the walls of an opponents castle like we can now!

For some reason I envision a Monty Python approach and launching a peasant from a catapult as he's yelling back, " Over theeerre...." while frafrantically trying to point.
