    Watched Longitude w/ my daughter over the weekend ...

    We really enjoyed it. I read the book maybe 7-8 years ago. My daughter read it last month. It was on 2 DVDs, w/ Jeremy Irons in it. Netflix has it. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0192263/ http://www.amazon.com/Longitude-Jona.../dp/B00004U2K1

    A great story well told; interesting that governments weren't good to their word even a couple of hundred years ago, trying to fiddle Harrison out of the money he'd clearly won. Nothing changes....

    If you're in London, a visit to the old Royal Observatory at Flamstead House in Greenwich is worthwhile. The have full size replicas of all of Harrison's chronometers, from H1 through to the remarkable H4.
