With a limited amount of time devoted to watching mind sucking television, I do live in a sort of bubble where the vast majority of news events pass me by (no loss). Even when I take the plunge and pick up a newspaper there’s always some frantic page scanner going on until finding stories that fit well with my various interests.

Following Matthew on Skiddaw Mountain this drone shot video gives a great sense of the scale when it comes to the surrounding landscape.
