The Peter Harrison Planetarium is a 120-seat digital laser planetarium, situated in Greenwich Park, London and is part of the National Maritime Museum. It opened on 25 May 2007.The planetarium uses Digistar 3 software with blue, red and green lasers and grating light valve (GLV) technology to create a 4,000 pixel strip. This strip is swept to produce a 5,000 by 4,000 pixel image, refreshed 60 times per second. The image is projected through a fisheye lens onto the dome of the planetarium.This planetarium is housed inside a 45-ton bronze-clad truncated cone, tilted at 51.5o to the horizontal (the latitude of Greenwich), and stands parallel to (but 50 metres east of) the prime meridian. It was conceived under the then Director, Roy Clare CBE, as the centrepiece of the "Time and Space" project, a £17.7m re-development of the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, and funded with a £3.25m grant from the Peter Harrison Foundation.
Per definizione, il videomaker è colui che cura personalmente le riprese e il montaggio dei suoi lavori, che in seguito verranno diffusi attraverso canali tv, web, oppure festival di cinema e/o cortometraggi.
Non riesco nemmeno a ricordare quando è stata la prima volta che mi sono seduto davanti ad uno schermo a combinare i vari Ctrl+c, Ctrl+v o Ctrl+z per ridurre in mille pezzi e poi riattaccare quelle infinite strisce colorate... Allora c'erano ancora decine di cavi da attaccare e staccare per far funzionare il tutto... si parla dei tempi in cui alla fine del lavoro bisognava staccare la linguetta dalla videocassetta per non rischiare di buttare via qualche ora di lavoro. Allora, Pal, VHS e S-VHS erano gli unici acronimi degni di nota, le telecamere erano ancora pesantissime ed io potevo usare tutti i trucchi del mestiere ma non riuscivo a tenerle ferme... Ormai si pensa che sia tutto più facile perchè tanto, chi non ha una reflex in casa? Tutti sono capaci a fare i video... in parte vero... Ma quando si commissiona un lavoro ad un videomaker gli si chiede di raccontare una storia e non soltanto di premere Rec.

The Millennium Dome, subsequently referred to simply as The Dome, is the original name of a large dome-shaped building, originally used to house the Millennium Experience, a major exhibition celebrating the beginning of the third millennium. Located on the Greenwich Peninsula in South East London, England, the exhibition was open to the public from 1 January to 31 December 2000. The project and exhibition was the subject of considerable political controversy as it failed to attract the number of visitors anticipated, with recurring financial problems. All of the original exhibition and associated complex has since been demolished. The dome still exists, and it is now a key exterior feature of The O2. The Prime Meridian passes the western edge of the Dome and the nearest London Underground station is North Greenwich on the Jubilee line.ConstructionThe dome is one of the largest of its type in the world. Externally, it appears as a large white marquee with twelve 100 m-high yellow support towers, one for each month of the year, or each hour of the clock face, representing the role played by Greenwich Mean Time. In plan view it is circular, 365 m (one metre for each day in a standard year) in diameter. It has become one of the United Kingdom's most recognisable landmarks. It can easily be seen on aerial photographs of London. Its exterior is reminiscent of the Dome of Discovery built for the Festival of Britain in 1951.
The O2 Arena, referred to as North Greenwich Arena in the context of the 2012 Summer Olympics and 2012 Summer Paralympics, is a multi-purpose indoor arena located in the centre of The O2 entertainment complex on the Greenwich Peninsula in south-east London. It is named after its primary sponsor, the telecommunications company O2.The O2 Arena is the world's largest building by measure of floor space, and has the second-highest seating capacity of any indoor venue in the United Kingdom, behind the Manchester Arena, but took the crown of the world's busiest music arena from New York City's Madison Square Garden in 2008. The closest underground station to the venue is the North Greenwich station on the Jubilee line.HistoryFollowing the closure of the Millennium Experience at the end of 2000, the Millennium Dome was leased to Meridian Delta Ltd. in 2001, for redevelopment as an entertainment complex. This included plans for an indoor arena.Construction of the arena started in 2003 and finished in 2007. After the interior of the dome had been largely cleared and before building work inside began, in December 2004, the dome was used as the main venue for the annual Crisis Open Christmas organised by the London-based homelessness charity Crisis.
The British Music Experience was a permanent exhibition, taking up more than 20,000 square feet, installed into The O₂ Bubble, part of The O₂ in Greenwich, London. Opened with a private concert by The View in March 2009, it featured a retrospective look at the British music industry since 1944. The museum closed on 30 April 2014 and announced it was looking for a new home.
Spearheaded by music mogul Harvey Goldsmith, designed by Land Design Studio and funded by The O₂ owners AEG, BME was created to fill a gap in the UK Heritage sector for Rock and Pop Music. Previously, the National Centre for Popular Music in Sheffield had attempted to achieve this but failed to attract visitors and was eventually closed.
The British Music Experience has been set up as a charitable trust and has been funded by £9.5m worth of investment from AEG who hope to recoup their costs within five years. Sponsorship agreements with The Performing Rights Society, Gibson Guitars and Sennheiser amongst others have helped establish the exhibition.

ExCeL is an exhibitions and international convention centre in the London Borough of Newham. It is located on a 100acre site on the northern quay of the Royal Victoria Dock in London Docklands, between Canary Wharf and London City Airport.HistoryThe centre was built by Sir Robert McAlpine and first opened in November 2000. In May 2008, it was acquired by Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company. Phase II of development, which included building London's first International Convention Centre (ICC) and creating an eastern arrival experience, was completed on 1 May 2010. In 2015, ExCeL announced the opening of CentrEd at ExCeL, a dedicated training and meetings space located close to the western entrance of the venue overlooking Royal Victoria Dock, adding to ExCeL's wide range of flexible spaces.The Royal Victoria Dock closed to commercial traffic in 1981, but it is still accessible to shipping. The centre's waterfront location allows visiting vessels to moor alongside the centre (for example, the 2005 London Boat Show was visited by HMS Sutherland).The exhibition building itself consists of two column-free, rectangular, subdividable halls of approximately 479,493 square feet (approximately 44,546 m²) each, on either side of a central boulevard containing catering facilities and information points. There are also three sets of function rooms, one overlooking the water, another above the western end of the central boulevard, and the third on the north side of the building. These are used for smaller meetings, seminars, presentations, and corporate hospitality. There are six hotels, more than 30 bars and restaurants, plus 3,700 parking spaces on the campus.

The Sun in the Sands is a public house between Blackheath and Shooter's Hill in London. The pub gives its name to the adjacent road junction, where the A2 between central London and Kent meets the A102, which provides access to the Blackwall Tunnel. Several Transport for London (TfL) bus routes pass close to the junction.There has been a meeting point at this location since the Middle Ages. It was allegedly a stopping point of King Henry VIII when riding from Greenwich to Shooter's Hill with his Queen and several Lords. The present pub dates from around 1745 and its name comes from the sight of the setting sun amidst dust, kicked up by sheep herded by drovers from Kent travelling towards London. It was originally an isolated inn on heathland, frequented by highwaymen known as "the Trojans", who regularly engaged in pickpocketing. William Hazlitt was known to visit the inn.The junction was built in stages, due to various 20th century projects to bypass the old Roman Road between Blackheath and Dartford. The A2 to the south was constructed as part of the "Shooters Hill By-Pass" which took most of the 1920s to complete. The modern roundabout interchange dates from the late 1960s.
