If you liked Top Gun… you will like Top Gun Maverick… its Top Gun meets Mission Impossible meets Star Wars A New Hope… very impressive low to the ground flying sequences… more tense and exhilirating than the original… good stuff… you will feel the GEEEE… will watch again… maybe top gun up on the original first… speed just got a whole lot faster…

MediaCityUK Photographic Time-lapse Movie – 2007 thru 2010

MediaCity UK Photographic Time-lapse Video – 2007 thru 2010

During my time working in Salford Quays as an IT Project Manager, I took a good number of photos and movies of the MediaCity build (literally from the ground up). The pictures were taken from 2007 when the dockland was flat and unused, through to 2010. MediaCity UK is now home to the BBC (BBC North), ITV in the North West and the University of Salford.

The 200 or so pictures in this movie represent an abridged timeline of the build selected from a few thousand photos starting from 2007.

Music soundtrack accompanying movie timeline is by John Barry and from the film –

Somewhere in Time (1980 – https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081534/) –
