Does anyone know if the documentary on the making of the shard that was on the other night is available online? Links would be appreciated.

From a distance, this looks like one tower in San Francisco. However, they're entirely different when compare both of them.

Am I going crazy or does some of the buildings look like they have musical notes above them?

I caught this view of The Shard and the St George Wharf Tower while passing through Clapham Junction station this afternoon.
