The revolution was televised after all! Two days before the "big rickety wheel" completes its final revolution at 6pm on Sunday afternoon, I popped back on-board and captured the view as it spun around. (You'll get a full trip around from about 25 seconds into the video. Go full screen to feel the lurches!)
Update - click through onto the Vimeo site to watch it in HD.
For those who are curious, one Flip camera looked out the front while a second looked out the back, and the two HD views were synchronised using a click of the fingers on the two sound tracks. You can hear strains of Ian Paisley preaching out the front of the City Hall.
There’s a slightly longer edited version on Vimeo. Feel free to get in touch if you have a good use for the original HD footage!
