Doctor Who - Time-Flight [VHS]
Originally broadcast on the BBC in the U.K. in 1982, Time Flight stars Peter Davison, the fifth Doctor, well known for his portrayal of Tristan in the BBC's All Creatures Great and Small. The TARDIS is mysteriously misdirected to Terminal One of London's Heathrow Airport, where a Concorde flight has simultaneously disappeared without a trace.
Time-Flight is the four-episode serial that concluded Peter Davison's first season as the fifth Doctor. Arriving at Heathrow Airport with companions Nyssa (Sarah Sutton) and Tegan (Janet Fielding), still grieving after the death of Adric in "Earthshock" (1982), the Doctor is soon involved in solving the mystery of a Concorde that has literally vanished into thin air. Tracing the lost plane's flight path in a second Concorde, the travelers find themselves flying through a hole in time into the prehistoric past. Here the Master (Anthony Ainley), under the rather camp persona of Kalid (which strangely he maintains even when alone), is planning to harness the power of the currently disembodied alien Xeraphin, who are stranded on Earth. Echoing both the classic 1960 Twilight Zone episode "The Odyssey of Flight 33" and prefiguring Stephen King's chilling The Langoliers (1990), at heart Time-Flight is a reworking of the superior Tom Baker Doctor Who story "City of Death" (1979). Ending on a minor cliffhanger, what makes the story really distinctive is that it was the first drama of any sort to be given permission to film in and around a genuine Concorde. --Gary S. Dalkin
Tiesto @ Time Supper Club.
Tijs began DJing professionally at school parties, and then moved on to becoming a resident DJ between 1985 and 1993 at several clubs in The Netherlands. During these years, he produced hardcore/gabber tracks under aliases Da Joker and DJ Limited. However, it was at "THE SPOCK" a small club in Breda, where he was able to fine tune his own style by playing in a separate room from 10pm until 4am on weekends. In the mid 1990s, he started to produce trance, and in 1997 he and Arny Bink co-founded Black Hole Recordings to support his work. A series of singles were released under various aliases, such as: Allure, Drumfire, Hammock Brothers, Paradise in Dubs, Passenger, Roze, Stray Dog, Tom Ace, and Wild Bunch.
Black Hole Recordings and its sub-label Magik Muzik continue to sign Tiesto's vision of trance-producing talent and DJs such as Cor Fijneman, Ton TB, and Mark Norman.
Tiesto's fame started to skyrocket in the late 1990's by playing at the first ID&T Innercity party, and in the early 2000's for his six hour "Tiesto Solo" sets which he performed without other DJs or opening acts. This idea of one DJ playing alone to a large crowd was brought to its pinnacle when Tiesto was the first DJ to hold a solo concert in a stadium when he did so for over 25,000 people in Arnhem's Gelredome May 10th, 2003. Dubbed "Tiesto in Concert", the event was an enormous success for Tijs. He repeated this type of concert in the next year during two consecutive nights in late October 2004. In addition to holding these two concerts for 35,000 of his fans, he held another for 20,000 in Hasselt, Belgium the week afterwards. Tickets for these shows sold out in a matter of a few hours. DVDs of both his May 10th 2003 and October 30th 2004 concerts have been released. The pinnacle of his career is no doubt his performance at the opening ceremony of the 2004 Summer Olympic Games in Athens Greece, witnessed by an estimated two to four billion  viewers around the world, another first for any DJ of any style or time period. A studio recorded rerun of his Olympic set, including new songs especially composed for the occasion, was released as a non stop mix-CD named "Parade of the Athletes" in October 2004.
On August 20th 2005 he took "Tiesto in Concert" to America by playing to thousands of Tiesto fans in Los Angeles, California in the LA Sports Arena. For a second year in a row he performed live for a New Year's Eve/New Year's concert in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Orleans Arena to a sold out crowd. Despite his four city American tour being postponed due to the hurricane damage in New Orleans and Miami, playing such cities in the United States further expanded and cemented his popularity among more mainstream audiences. In the fall of 2005 he went on a very successful tour throughout Central and Eastern Europe where he played once in each country to amazing crowds of 10,000 to 15,000 fans. Stops were made in Slovakia, Serbia and Montenegro, Macedonia, Romania, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Turkey, Poland, and Croatia. Tiesto also performed at the UNITY festivals, which included a stop in South Africa where, notably, he played a show in Johannesburg at the Gallagher Estate Arena to over 18,000 fans.
His hit singles include "Flight 643," "Lethal Industry," "Suburban Train," "Traffic," and his interpretation of Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings." Flight 643 was voted as the second most influential dance track of all time by ID&T fans, Lethal Industry has one of the most identifiable climaxes in trance, Suburban Train was his infamous and energetic closing track, Traffic was the first instrumental track to reach #1 in the Netherlands in 23 years, and Adagio for Strings was the mind-blowing opening track at his 2003 concert. His albums are also deserving of acclaim for their quality, style and popularity. His artist albums, "In My Memory" and "Just Be," together contain these mentioned songs in addition to more of Tiesto's better known productions. His Magik CD series of 7 albums, beginning with "Magik One: First Flight" in 1997 and essentially ending with "Magik Seven: Live in Los Angeles" in 2000, was the best selling trance mix CD series of all time. The 4th episode in the successor In Search of Sunrise series contains some of the more artistically worthy trance records and is mixed by Tiesto so well it releases the listener into the warmth and energy of Ibiza and Latin America.
Tijs was the first DJ to hold DJ Magazine's 'No. 1. DJ in the World' title for the three consecutive years, in 2002, 2003 and 2004. Other honours include countless national and international best DJ awards, being named Officer of the "Order of Orange-Nassau" by the Dutch Royalty, and being voted by the Dutch people as their 40th greatest citizen of all time.

A FLOWER OF THE GODS ...... THE ACROPOLIS ATHENS
The acropolis athens greece september 2010 History Early settlement While the earliest artifacts date to the Middle Neolithic era, there have been documented habitations in Attica from the Early Neolithic (6th millennium BC). There is little doubt that a Mycenaean megaron stood upon the hill during the late Bronze Age. Nothing of this megaron survives except, probably, a single limestone column-base and pieces of several sandstone steps. Soon after the palace was built a Cyclopean massive circuit wall was built, 760 meters long, up to 10 meters high, and ranging from 3.5 to 6 meters thick. This wall would serve as the main defense for the acropolis until the 5th century The wall consisted of two parapets built with large stone blocks and cemented with an earth mortar called emplekton (Greek: ?????????) The wall follows typical Mycenaean convention in that it followed the natural contour of the terrain and its gate was arranged obliquely, with a parapet and tower overhanging the incomers' right-hand side, thus facilitating defense. There were two lesser approaches up the hill on its north side, consisting of steep, narrow flights of steps cut in the rock. Homer is assumed to refer to this fortification when he mentions the "strong-built House of Erechtheus" . At some point before the 13th century an earthquake caused a fissure near the northeastern edge of the acropolis. This fissure extended some thirty five meters to a bed of soft marl in which a well was dug. An elaborate set of stairs was built and the well was used as a protected source of drinking water during some portion of the Mycenaean period, as it was invaluable in times of siege. The Dark Ages There is no conclusive evidence for the existence of a Mycenean palace on top of the Athenian Acropolis. However, if there was such a palace, it seems to have been transplanted by later building activity on the Acropolis. Not much is known as to the architectural appearance of the Acropolis until the archaic era. In the 7th and the 6th centuries BC the site was taken over by Kylon during the failed Kylonian revolt, and twice by Pisistratus: all attempts directed at seizing political power by coups d' etat. Nevertheless it seems that a nine-gate wall, the Enneapylon, had been built around the biggest water spring, the "Clepsydra", at the northwestern foot. It was Pisistratus who initially established a precinct for Artemis on the site. Archaic Acropolis A temple sacred to "Athena Polias" (Protectress of the City) was quickly erected by mid-6th century BC. This Doric limestone building, from which many relics survive, is referred to as the "Bluebeard" temple, named after the pedimental three-bodied man-serpent sculpture, whose beards were painted dark blue. Whether this temple replaced an older one, or a mere sacred precinct or altar, is not known. In the late 6th century BC yet another temple was built, usually referred to as the Archaios Naos (Old Temple). This temple of Athena Polias was built upon the Doerpfeld foundations. It is unknown where the "Bluebeard" temple was built. There are two popular theories the "Bluebeard" temple was built upon the Doerpfeld foundations, the "Bluebeard" temple was built where the Parthenon now stands. That being said it is unknown if the "Bluebeard" temple and the Archaios Naos coexisted. To confuse matters, by the time the "Bluebeard" Temple had been dismantled, a newer and grander marble building, the "Older Parthenon" (often called the "Ur-Parthenon", German for "Early Parthenon"), was started following the victory at Marathon in 490 BC. To accommodate it, the south part of the summit was cleared of older remnants, made level by adding some 8,000 two-ton blocks of Piraeus limestone, a foundation 11 m (36 ft) deep at some points, and the rest filled with earth kept in place by the retaining wall. The Older Parthenon was still under construction when the Persians sacked the city in 480 BC. The building was burnt and looted along with the Archaios Naos and practically everything else on the rock. After the Persian crisis had subsided the Athenians incorporated many of the unfinished temple's architectural members (still unfluted column drums, triglyphs, metopes, etc.) to the newly built northern curtain wall of the Acropolis, where they also served as a prominent "war memorial" and where they can still be seen today. The devastated site was cleared from debris. Statuary, cult objects, religious offerings and unsalvageable architectural members were buried ceremoniously in several deeply dug pits on the hill, serving conveniently as a fill for the artificial plateau created around the classic Parthenon. This "Persian debris" is the richest archaeological deposit excavated on the Acropolis. The Periclean building program Most of the major temples were rebuilt under the leaders
