Great Royaldevon 2017-04-30 1:09

Good Morning Ike,

There has just been a fine series of programmes on BBC about British castles and Edinburgh featured in this recent edition. Such views as this were featured.

You have given quite a different view of Edinburgh, accentuating how it appears to be built in a valley between the ridge upon which the castle is built, at this side, and Arthur's Seat, at the opposite side.
It's a sharp photograph with a fine dof, clearly showing the variety of 'upper' storeys. The city seems to fit snuggly into the space.

Have a good Sunday,
Bev :-)

Thumbs up To Royaldevon: BBC about Edinburgh

Hello Beverley,
Thanks for your supporting critique this morning.
If you recall this picture from Parliament Sq., it was taken under special circumstances : The BBC were shooting that night part/chapter on a documentary about Edinburgh - as I was "almost" not allowed to enter the square...
Maybe now you saw this on TV.
Wish you a nice Sunday,
Ike

Default Edinburgh

Hello Ike, this scene could easily have been included in the programme but it was mostly about Edinburgh Castle and how it is the most besieged castle in Britain. It told about why it was built there, of people who had attacked it and for what reason, also people who had been imprisoned there!

Do you get BBC programmes in Israel?

My warm regards,
Bev

Thumbs up BBC in israel

Hi Beverley,
We used to have many BBC programs in Israel, along with best comedies from England.
Lately they only show "East-Enders" and "Doctors", hope the documentaries will return.
Good evening,
Ike
