The Nottingham Bells, Nottingham, UK and Queensland, Australia.

In a site due for demolition, a story about two bells that used to be housed in a bell tower on the site was unearthed. I tracked down the location of the bells in Townsville, Queensland and asked the man who took them there 50 years previously to ring them manually as part of a live event. 83 year old Dr Pat Flecker rang the bells whilst holding a mobile phone that was connected to the phone where I was. My phone was then connected to a modified Tannoy speaker. As I held the speaker out of the window of the site where the bells were once housed, their sound was heard again after 50 years of silence. The peal could be heard simultaneously in two continents at two different time zones.
