Timelapse of London to Brighton Train Journey: 1953, 1983, 2013

60 years ago in 1953 the BBC  took a non-stop video of a train journey from London to Brighton. Then after 30 years in 1983 they did the same trip. And as another 30 years passed BBC sent their correspondent Paul Clifton to repeat the exercise and observe the changes after more than half a century.

Bringing cinema to the world’s toughest locations: Adventure filmmaker Bryan Smith shot this remarkable clip of American free climber Dean Potter from New Hampshire, crossing a highline tied to Cathedral Peak in Yosemite National Park. The shot was captured during the 2011 filming of the National Geographic Channel show, The Man Who Can Fly, which featured Potter wingsuiting and BASE jumping. To get the wild perspective timed with the moving full moon, Smith used a camera equipped with a Canon 800mm super telephoto lens positioned over a mile away. Fantastic capture. [Via Redbull]
