Rabbit visits the Tallinn television tower

Rabbit visits the Tallinn television tower
The tower was built originally to improve broadcasting for the 1980 Moscow Olympics. It played a key role in Estonia regaining its independence in 1991 when four telecommunications workers prevented soviet troops from seizing the tower and kept the Estonian media on air. There's a great view from the top, but you must hold on to your ears.

Don't wish to doubt your superb historical knowledge Rabbit, but why keep Latvian media on air rather than Estonian?

Argh! Of course you're right! in Rabbit's defence, we are actually in Latvia at the moment and suffering a certain amount of cultural confusion. I've corrected it now .....
