For a limited time, SBS online is showing Up To The Sky Episode 1: The Hearst Tower, a half hour german documentary (with English narration). It’s a mildly interesting doco, if you can call it a documentary – it is rather gushingly positive. It zigzags about between various topics – one of the more interesting tidbits to emerge was that Foster’s initial presentation to the Hearst board was taking place when the World Trade Center was attacked down the street.

In the olden days this would have resulted in letters to council and getting Geoffrey Rush involved. Nowadays you make a movie about it.
