Good documentary. I even saw my late grandfather on top of the building during construction. He was working on the air ventilation system
As ever, reaching for a cigarette :P
That is great, well spotted!
Sorry for the late reply to everyone and thanks for all the comments.
Regards putting it online apart from the RTE Player I personally cannot as I only have permission for the archive footage for broadcast etc.. I have no objections to anyone else putting it up if you have it and want to, I certainly won't be trying to sell it.
The RTE Player will not work outside the republic for copyright reasons, it will be removed in about a week from the RTE Player aswell.
As for the light/dark thing it is great when you see images of the building with all the lights on, I had not seen the Eurovision shot before, I'm glad as I might have been tempted to put it in! For me the best angle to see the building when a lot of the lights are on is coming around Pearce St. on to Tara Street in the winter, below.
Regards the reflective glass it is my understanding talking to him that he had absolutely nothing to do with it or the covering of the mosaic tiles, it is a coating (3M) on the glass rather than different glass which was added. He did do work on the building after the bomb but I think it was more inspecting the building for damage as he says.
I noticed in the last few weeks on about the 10th floor on the west side they have taken away the reflective coating and put on something which looks more tinted, I'll try get a photo next time but I wonder is this a test for future plans?
