I spent a good many hours yesterday with my computer on and set to the live video feed of the raising of the Concordia. Many hours of not much seeming to happen, then suddenly you return to the screen to to see a lot has happened. Fascinating stuff, really. And oddly riveting.
The best part was there was no filling the air time with inane and/or repetitive commentary, just the visual with the sound of the gentle waves (quite soothing actually, when I was napping) and the distant voices of some of the engineering crew. The comments on the Reuters site (seriously moderated, I'm sure) were for the most part intelligent, for a change and the answers were well considered and insightful.
The BBC has a pretty cool time-lapse video (plus many more images) for anyone who didn't have a spare 19 hours...
So, no need for a made-for-tv movie about this, then?!
In the meantime, google maps still shows the unrighted vessel lying of the island
