Great viewing

I saw this on a plane - amazing the romantic gall of this weirdly fascinating man, who walks for 45 minutes back and forth on a piece of wire suspended 400 metres up between the twin towers, laughing at the police who threaten to get a helicopter to come and pluck him off it! (No common sense regarding air currents I guess) No safety net and he's just spent the entire night hauling the wire into place. An amazing doco - be good to see it on the big screen, although a lot of the footage is old amateur video stuff. Well worth a watch.
