60 Minutes crew visits Iceland volcano
Wednesday 5, May 2010
A team from the world famous American current affairs programme, 60 Minutes is currently in Iceland. The respected journalist Scott Pelley is with the team creating a film about the Eyjafjallajökull volcanic eruption.
The team has been in Iceland since the middle of last week, according to Visir.is.
The crew expected to take a helicopter flight around the volcano on Saturday to provide footage for the video which is due to be screened in the autumn. It was eventually decided to go by car instead, probably due to cloud cover.
They are the first people to drive up the Eyjafjallajökull glacier since the eruption began and other 4×4 enthusiasts are hoping they too will get the chance.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
