Oh that is very bad for London. So they can't construct more than 300 meters in high

Unfortunately the Isle of Dogs lies partly within the boundaries of Annex 14 of the ICAO. The Shard doesn't have this same problem.

Update of Southwark towers demo a few days ago - essentially the towers have now dissappeared from the skyline though still a long way to go

Awesome... It reaffirms to me however that 20 Fenchurch Street is going to stick out like a sore thumb. Everything else looks 'right', even Beetham.

Yep, my view on it was starting to soften...not much mind. But after seeing this render i've gone back to completely hating it.

It looks fat, stumpy and ruins the soar and grandeur of the city cluster - it looks like a stroppy, sulky fat kid acting as a downer on everyone else.

Sadly that video is only available to browsers in the UK. Any chance someone could rip it and repost it somewhere?, I would love to be able to see it.

You can download the last 7 minutes from my website, in WMV format:

http://www.willfox.com/videos/skyscr...nfromabove.wmv

It's around 96 megabytes.

Thanks, I was going to rant at the BBC for not making its video available outside UK.

What gives, in all of my browsing over the last decade, I have never, ever seen a video restricted like that.

I have watched Russian TV and the news from Auckland NZ, Chinese sportscasts, world cup via Bahrain, Al Jezeera news, listened to Indian radio stations and so on. This is really a HUGE STEP BACKWARDs for the "World Wide" web.

BBC major

It's because of some legal constraint which means only UK viewers can watch it (same with the BBC Youtube channel etc)...it's because British people have to pay for the BBC through the license fee. I guess meaning that others can't watch it online because they haven't "paid" for it.
