I recorded this video in June 2006 (sometime during the football World Cup, you can see that Stuttgart is very busy). The places in this pre-News segment are:
London - Stuttgart - Paris - Helsinki - Brussels - Venice - Beaver Creek, Colorado

Here's a video I recorded of earthTV back in June 2006. I hope this helps show that I'm not just a fan of webcams (so 90s!) and that there's a bit more to earthTV than that... the music, the escapism, the data caption. It's so great to see other places of the world... live! The places in this video are:
Dusseldorf - Hong Kong - Cebu - Cologne - Geneva - Sydney - Mannum (near Adelaide, Australia)
Piccadilly Circus, London, but day! Lots of tourists sitting around the statue and one of the open top double decker buses stopped at the lights. Looks like I was watching al-Arabiya TV at the time.
St.Malo in France, possibly after rain because the glass in front of the camera looks a bit occluded.

Melbourne in Oz, with its speeding tram. It's great to watch these cities on the other side of the world in daylight when here in Europe it's night.

Watching earthTV, for the North American continent I've only seen webcams in the USA so far. Here's something urban but apparently quiet in DC.
This webcam is in Colorado. This digicam photo of its view is from the al Arabiya TV station, not BBC World this time.
Ooooh, much better view of Washington DC. Capitol Hill I guess. At night, obviously, so a reminder that liveonearth is showing a window on a part of the world that is in a totally different part of the day to you...
A place called Cebu... looks like proper sandy beaches kind of stuff... never heard of it until now. Looks like a great place for a holiday though!
Manila. Hey, its just a road junction, but I love the symmetry of it. It's very un-British if you ask me. Also, I like the way that as a webcam, it shows "life as normal" elsewhere, despite what might be happening outside your window in your own life.
