Every time I look at films/documentaries that include the London skyline with the BT tower in there, I have to laugh.
Some evil wench, who shall not be named (mainly because I can't remember which one of the three it was) decided, when I went into London for the first time, to inform me that the BT Tower was actually a spy tower for the ministry of defense, and that it was actually an official secret, and therefore it was a punishable offense to look at it. What with me being the fresh Irish rube that I was, setting foot in London for the first time!
It wasn't until several years later when I mentioned it to someone else, who mentioned it to some of our English friends that I realised I'd been had.
Now, when I look at that tower on the telly, I just have to laugh. *shakes fist at whoever told me*
