FAO Mr Laz

I just saw an advert on TV for History channel, there's a prog at 4.00 next Saturday called Towering Cranes, where a bunch of men try and build a medieval crane thing.

I thought I should send out the Laz signal

I'm sure I've seen something with them building a trebuchet but I don't know about a crane...

Wasn't there someone hurt in Oxford when a bunch of engineering students built a life size trebuchet and then took turns getting launched out of it. The fellow was fat so he didn't make it to the landing pad.
