The day has finally come!
Channel 5 have started their big ole ad campaign for Lion Tv’s latest docu/reality/soap show Candy Bar Girls. It will air on 7th July at 9pm.
Check out Sneeky Peek for a behind the scenes look at our shoot for the title sequence featuring the stars of the show.
We have Stonehenge a thousand(s?) year old monument shrouded in magic and mystery, druids and a whole lot of other hokum – so of course the Americans have to (accidentally) go one better.

During the summer and winter solstice (around May 28th and January 8th for those of you have left your natural history handbook at home) the rising and setting sun’s path lines up directly with Manhattan’s grid pattern causing a Stonehenge effect with skyscrapers.
Here comes the science…
It applies to those streets that follow the Commissioners’ Plan of 1811, which laid out a grid offset 29.0 degrees from true east–west. The 29.0 degrees should be added to true east and west, making the western bearing approximately 299.0 degrees. (Good old Wikipedia) See? Simples.
