I also thought the tower was called Big Ben too. I learn new informations from these videos.

Very interesting! I thought Big Ben was the name of the tower... I was wrong

Hello! Who is signer the song "This is london, yes yes"?

Hello Andrew1986,

As far as I know this is not a song which is commercially available. I think it was made specially for this episode.

I can't see the video. I see the inscription "Connection error". Sometimes the video was avalable. Maybe you can halp me?

Hello Qwesa,

The video is working for me now – what about you? This kind of error is often due to internet connectivity problems or some kind of temporary technical problem. If you still can't see the video, are you able to see other videos, e.g. on YouTube? 

All the best,

Hi Qwesa,

Please try installing the Adobe Flash Player on your device – that may solve the problem. If not, could you please tell us what browser you're using and what version of the browser it is? Are you able to see the videos on LearnEnglish if you use a different device and/or browser?

All the best,

Hello Qwesa,

Are your browsers the latest versions? I'm able to see the video in IE on my computer, but if you have an older browser, it may not display our content correctly. I'd suggest you try to view the pages using a new version of IE or Chrome or Firefox. If that doesn't work, please let us know what operating system (and version number) you use as well as the versions of the browsers you've tried. I will then check with our technical team.

Best wishes,
