Slideshow of past Places, events and buildings in Harlow, essex. Also see Harlows Future plans http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5VmY4DX_yQ The great architect Sir Frederick Gibberd devised a master plan to transform the sleepy market community into a thriving, modern town that was to boast the countrys first post-war tower block and pedestrianised shopping precinct. The older parts of the town were left in situ, linked by the new housing estates and a series of small shopping centres. The new town was designed to compliment the rural Essex countryside, with generous swathes of green areas and parkland dissecting the housing estates. Many of the town's new buildings were designed in a contemporary, even futuristic style (for the pre 1970s). The town also displays fine examples of modern sculpture in its open spaces. The works of Rodin, Henry Moore and Frederick Gibberd are strategically placed to great effect around the town centre and parkland areas. Today Harlow continues to grow and its great facilities and proximity to London, Cambridge and Stansted International Airport, make it a magnet for businesses, shoppers and commuters alike. There are plans to develop Harlow further with ambitious regeneration projects already underway, which include massive investments in housing, business and recreation facilities, whilst preserving the towns treasured green spaces Thanks for watching www.ochg.co.uk

Pictures from the Past Harlow, Essex, also see Harlows Future plans http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5VmY4DX_yQ The town was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, having a population of just 50. An ancient Saxon village had sprung up in the Old Harlow area by the 12th Century, based around the hill at Mulberry Green. After the Norman Conquest the area became populated by both Normans and Saxons, with a number of Norman manor houses, including Mark Hall being founded. There is also evidence that markets had been held in the village long before the 12th Century, with the Harlow Bush Fair appearing in ancient manuscripts. There are several ancient buildings surviving in the town, including Harlow Mil, a water mill which has been in operation in some capacity since before 1000 AD; as well as several Grade I listed buildings. For most of its existence the village of Harlow was little more than a charming stopping point on the road between Cambridge and London. The original village was expanded after the Second World War to provide modern, secure housing for the thousands of Londoners displaced by the Blitz. Thanks for watching www.ochg.co.uk

A man says life is "beautiful" after he survived a collision between a truck and a train that was captured on security camera video. The video, released on Wednesday by the Turkish news agency Dogan, shows a train ramming into a flatbed truck as it crosses train tracks in the Mediterranean port city of Mersin on February 25. Propelled sideways, the truck sweeps over 32-year-old Cem Tokac, who was standing beside the tracks. The footage shows Tokac after the accident, lying motionless on the ground. Remarkably, Tokac - As well as the truck driver - Suffered only minor injuries. "I can't remember anything about the accident," Tokac said. "I thought I was asleep. But when I woke up, I was not in my bed. I was on the ground." Tokac, who plans to marry in April, said February 25 is his new birthday. "Life is really beautiful," he said.

Pushing the limit Mental take off - F16 fighter jet, this is a FULL size Jet Fighter, WTF how did he do that! The General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is a multirole jet fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force (USAF). The Fighting Falcon is a dogfighter with numerous innovations including a frameless bubble canopy for better visibility, side-mounted control stick to ease control while maneuvering, a seat reclined 30 degrees to reduce the effect of g-forces on the pilot, and the first use of a relaxed static stability/fly-by-wire flight control system that makes it a highly nimble aircraft. The F-16 has an internal M61 Vulcan cannon and has 11 hardpoints for mounting weapons, and other mission equipment. Although the F-16's official name is "Fighting Falcon", it is known to its pilots as the "Viper", due to it resembling a viper snake and after the Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper starfighter

Range Rover CSK 001, Land Rover borrowed CSK 001 for the Range Rover Sport's World Wide Launch in Spain (these pictures) The CSK was not the first limited edition Land Rover had built. Before the Range Rover Sport was introduced in April/May 2005, the CSK had been the only other sporting Range Rover. For this reason Land Rover borrowed CSK 001 for the Range Rover Sport's World Wide Launch in Spain (these pictures) as a link between old and new and as a tribute to the original designer of the Range Rover, Charles Spencer King. His design stands for a true motoring icon and the Range Rover CSK Land Rover has since also used CSK 001 for the Lauch of both the Evoke and the Range Rover 4. CSK 001 was at both the 2011 & 2012 Paris Motor Show on the Land Rover stand.

Range Rover CSK number 001, It's very difficult to get an agreed value on a vehicle like this. Some people say that a CSK in concours state is worth as much as 80 grand, while others think that the figure is not as high. The trouble is, because this is number 001 , if something happened to it no sum of money could replace it. You could get another CSK, but it wouldn't be the first one. In that sense, this vehicle is a truly unique piece of Land Rover history.

Dramatic footage showing a car trapped on the front of a speeding Lorry has been captured on a mobile phone. It appears the truck driver was unaware of hitting the Renault hatchback, before pushing the vehicle at 60 miles per hour along the UK Motorway. Police launched an investigation into the incident which took place back in January, but reports say there were no injuries or arrests. A VET from York has told how she feared for her life after being rammed down a busy motorway by a massive tanker. Rona Williams, 31, told how her blue Renault Clio became wedged against the 18-wheelers frontage, as it careered down the A1(M) near Wetherby. Video footage of the drama became a massive internet hit when it was posted on YouTube last week and Rona has now told of her terrifying ordeal. She said she yanked at the steering wheel and handbrake, sounded her horn and flashed her lights in vain, before finally using her mobile phone to alert police. She told a 999 operator: Im going to die, Im going to die! Can you do something? The tanker driver realised the problem when his vehicle began lurching. Miss Williams, who was on her way to her surgery in Garforth, said: He finally twigged and managed to manoeuvre us onto the hard shoulder. He backed up to release my car, got out and opened my door to check I was okay. "He even asked if I thought he needed to hang around! I told him he did because Id called the police. They were there in minutes but because I wasnt injured they just helped exchange our insurance details. I wasnt physically hurt but I was in complete shock. The YouTube footage was taken by a passenger in another car, who is heard shouting: He hasnt even seen it! West Yorkshire Police are re-investigating the incident, which happened in Janaury. Rona told reporters: I was aware of the tanker. We had been on the road together for a while and he was in the middle lane. The next thing I know Im stuck to the front of his lorry. Ive no idea how but I didnt deviate from my path. I just felt a knock and then I was travelling sideways. I dont know how long for but it felt like forever. I was terrified the tanker was going to crash me into the central reservation, and that would be that. Ive seen the footage and the trucker seems to be going along like nothing has happened and thats exactly what it felt like. The tanker is owned by Arclid Transport in Cheshire.

it consists of one large roundabout, surrounded by six mini-roundabouts - one for each of the six original junctions. And how does that work, you might ask? Basically, each mini-roundabout is treated just like a normal roundabout, with the main roundabout acting as a sort of distraction. But the really distinguishing motif of this grand cosmic wheel of traffic is that you are perfectly entitled to turn right at any of the mini-roundabouts as well as turn left. This means you can quite easily find yourself driving anti-clockwise around the main roundabout. And let's not forget, clockwise and clockwise only is the rule of thumb for all other British roundabouts. As you might well imagine, this causes a lot of confusion.

This Ladybird is walking upa nd down a garage shutter - Ladybird [Insect] with 19 black spots good clips at 0:53 and 1:45 Harlequin ladybirds first arrived in Britain from Asia in the summer of 2004 and quickly spread across England and into Wales. They have been spotted as far north as the Orkney Islands. The mini-beasts, which push themselves through household cracks as the weather turns cold, emit a yellow chemical when disturbed that stains walls and furnishings. Called 'reflex blood' it is packed full of chemicals that give off a bad odour. There are 46 species of ladybird (Coccinellidae) resident in Britain, but the aggressive Harlequin threatens many of them. Larger and spottier than native species they feed on other ladybird lava and caterpillars. A single female can lay over a thousand eggs Filmed witha Panasonic Lumix HD Camera

Video starts 0:25 seconds in, first part is still pictures of the unbelievable event - A haulage firm today began an investigation after a video emerged that appeared to show a lorry driver speeding along a motorway unaware that a car was trapped under its bumper. The mobile phone footage shows an Arclid Transport lorry travelling in the fast lane on the A1 near Wetherby, west Yorkshire, with a blue Renault Clio trapped sideways under its bumper. The footage, believed to have been filmed in January by passengers in a vehicle on the same road, showed the driver of the Clio who has not so far been identified appearing to try to release the car by pressing the brakes. A male voice can be heard inside the car from which the scene was filmed, shouting: "He [the lorry driver] hasn't even seen it." It is believed the car driver emerged without any serious injuries once both vehicles had come to a stop. The footage was later posted on YouTube, but is it real of fake?

The honour in her name will be granted to the next of kin of servicemen and women who died during operations or were killed as the result of terrorist action since the Second World War. The Chief of the Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Jock Stirrup, said he believed that the Cross would be worn with "immense pride". "It is a reminder not just of the ultimate price their loved ones have paid while safeguarding our security and freedom it is also a lasting symbol of the nation's recognition of and gratitude for their sacrifice," The Queen reiterated the point in her closing address to service personnel. "I greatly hope that the Elizabeth Cross will give further meaning to the nation's debt of gratitude to the families and loved ones of those who have died in the service of our country," she said. "We will remember them all." Notes from Creator: I put this together in 5 minutes, as I wanted to support our troops, I will put something better up when I get time.
