Toad legend that may have inspired ‘One Froggy Evening’

While looking for the film clip of the Abraham Lincoln statue, I discovered this.

The story of a toad that (supposedly) was trapped in a building cornerstone, but was still alive when found 31 years later. This must surely have been the inspiration for the Merrie Melodies cartoon One Froggy Evening?

For me, the last three Sunday nights on BBC2 have been must-see television. The latest three part documentary by Adam Curtis: The Trap. Followed by Kombat Opera Presents.

BBC World and WTC Building 7 collapse on September 11

This seems quite extraordinary. This clip seems to show BBC World reporting that World Trade Centre Building 7 has collapsed on September 11th. Yet the reporter is standing in front of a window and WTC Building 7 is still standing in the distance behind her. More info here.
