Excellent find - [ and I've always wondered about if that Telly Tubbies type hill was real ]

I can't believe it, I was talking to someone about that picture only an hour ago... we both wondered where it is and whether it might possibly be the most viewed picture in the world.
What a coincidence!

The Teletubbies Kids programme is filmed on a farmland just southwest of Wimpstone village, near Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire.... so I'm guessing its real....

Amazing - I always thought it was CGI'd... one dreads to think of the cost!

Reminds me of a few years ago; I was driving to Rome in a big Mercedes Sprinter van with a mate/colleague on our way to set up a conference set.

All of a sudden, without warning, on a quiet country road in Tuscanny, the van lurched to the side of the road, then came to an almighty stop, launching me into the glove compartment and then onto the floor (OK, I was properly belted in )
Awoken so abruptly from my little nap, it became apparent my mate had pulled up to take a picture of a tree, on top of a hill.
And it never was a very good picture!!

That's amazing... seeing it in context of its surroundings it looks nothing like what we're used to. It's like a different place!
