The fun side of detail delights
Funky Towers is located on Blackpool's promenade, halfway between the Central and South piers. Capturing kiss-me-quick playfulness in a tasteful, less intrusive way, the establishment was an obvious candidate for further seaside scrutiny.

Credits where credit is not due
I don't know about you lot, but for several years now something has been grating on me regarding ITV's closing credits. "See you next week everyone" is regularly uttered out of the mouths of key ITV talents, only for us the audience to swiftly (and inconsiderately) find ourselves in a blackout. The same white font, on the same black background for the majority of ITV's output. The only regular exception to "one-size depresses all" is the news, where they are embossed over a wide shot of the presenters.

Touches on Tour at Florida's Gulf Coast
I first stepped foot in Clearwater's clear waters way back in 2003, when the Metcalfs were lucky enough to spend the second week of our holiday in the resort after losing our Walt Disney World virginity. Back then it was a cool beach place, and over a decade on it is even cooler. Although naturally, the same adjective can't be used to describe the temperature.

Touches on Tour at Coronation Street: The Tour
The last time many of us stepped foot on the Coronation Street set, it was part of Granada Studios Tour, an attraction which had more facets, even though the star of the show always remained gracing the hallowed cobbles. Fast-forward almost fifteen years since the last turn of the turnstiles and this time it most definitely is a tale of a Weatherfield kind from start to finish.

LT Video Faves - Humanity kits and red carpets
Here we present another of our LT Video Faves, this time featuring a very special hospitality employee - Louree Jefferson. The Banquet Services captain gets to know her Guests individually, but everyone always leaves with the same, heartfelt kit put together by Louree to remember her by. Plus, the red carpet is not just rolled out metaphorically...
"I don't care what they want. They can want the moon, and I will make it happen" Louree Jefferson

LT Video Faves - Disney's Water Art
Featured as part of our website's LT Video Faves section, this short clip illustrates how Custodial Cast Members at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom theme park use the tools of their trade, i.e. brush and pan, in conjunction with that most basic of human need, water, to captivate Guests almost as much as the attractions worth millions.
