    Or: "Tom's Cockup Trip".
    This is a story about a television title sequence, and about me, as a child, watching it. It’s also a warning about how DE-film won’t last forever, and it's the reason I'm climbing one particular hill in the Lake District. Merry Christmas, Denis Norden.

I know this video's a bit personal; it's not the sort of thing I normally do. But it seemed like a good story to tell for Christmas.

Three things I would like to know 1 How big of a iron dust cloud coalescing, would it take to make say a railroad spike ? 2 why do they always show the solar system in the flat instead of a more realistic representation of a helix where the planets are following the sun around the galaxy ? 3 in an ever expanding universe, where space between everything is getting larger, could I be as big as a mountain was a short time ago ?

Great vid! Used to be like that with games around 2010 too but then a “chase to the bottom” began and people began to make games knowing they’d be sold in a bundle with 6 others for 99p (with the bundle owner taking the lions share wtf), and of course crushing sales events cutting prices by 90% or whatever. Before that I was making my magnum opus kind of thing: a giant adventure game that included needless bits. An area that parsed the dev locations position and pulled down weather data in the obligatory of the time secret dev zone. Handcrafted physics engines and tying particles to it so explosions blow away smoke, rain pooling and dripping. These days a lot of these systems are built into dev suites like UE and co. There’s more but I want to crack on and watch more videos.

It's not just the intros either - there have been some truly elaborate TV sets, some of which only appeared on screen for a handful of minutes and were never seen again, being destroyed after recording was complete. There's an episode of Dad's Army where the opening 8 minutes or so take place in the Vicar's garden - which is in fact an elaborate studio set with a lawn, statue, plants, patio etc and difficult to determine from the real thing. Used for a few minutes in that episode - and then never again.

I love me a good title sequence. It's as important as the work itself. Seeing that Alright on the Night title was brilliant. Doing a title sequence with the kind of practical effects they used/had access to had to be rough on time constraints and budget. I hope someone posts it to Art of the Title.

"It's also a warning how youtube won't last forever" I'll be honest, i can't imagine life without youtube. So many youtubers make me howl with laughter, amaze me with their musical skills, or damn good video's. I know it won't last forever, but... would it end within our lifetime? I think not to be fair

I've watched this video multiple times and I got to say that this is one of the best videos ever from this channel and maybe even the entire platform. And it's mostly just about a title sequence for a show I had no knowledge about or connection to as I'm not from the UK. Still the 18-minute long video does not feel boring at any moment. Everything starts by talking about a very obscure subject and in the end it's something much bigger. It's just fantastic.

I wonder if the compass needle was actually real, though. It wouldn't take much effort to paint it out, then add an new one in digitally that the artist can then animate. Good attention to detail, no matter how it was done.

I think also they specifically modified the cover of the map to have a map of the UK on the cover for the laser beam to target, or even commissioned OS to make a one off with Great Cockup on that part of sheet . I've got a copy of this particular OS Map (Outdoor Leisure 4) from around the same time and the cover has a photograph on and the key is in a different place. . Even more effort gone to if they did commission that.

This video has come to mind a couple of times recently. If you can watch the BBC iplayer search out Sarah and Duck. It's a whimsical kids carton but sometimes the attention to detail is astonishing for such a show. In the episode Birthday Buoy the characters are on a boat, when it pulls away the flamingo ( yes it's whimsical ) who is standing takes a tiny step back as you may in real life, his head also bobs slightly in motion with the boat. It's detail that's simply not required but it's there, someone cared, someone made the compass spin. In another episode, I forget which, it's raining at night. Most cartoons would simply have constant rain lines across the screen but in this a light source, such as Moon or Sarah's torch cause the rain to be clearer and illuminated around that object while it also appears to fall at different speeds across the scene depending on how far away it is from the viewer. It's one of the most realistic depictions of rain I've ever seen in animation.
