WATCH: Richard Hammonds Engineering Connections Series 1, Episode 2

BORDCASTS: 22 Feb 2009 20:10 on BBC Two (except Wales, Wales (Analogue))

               23 Feb 2009 19:00 on BBC Two

               23 Feb 2009 20:00 on BBCHD

 

 

By the Top Gear’s famous presenter Richard Hammonds, in this brand new programme he travels to Taipei and discovers the secrets of the world’s tallest building, Taipei 101. This modern marvel of engineering, it stands at a jaw-dropping 1671 feet. Built on top of a seismic fault line and in a typhoon hotspot, its height is all the more impressive given its location. Richard discovers just what it is in the Taipei 101’s DNA that allows it be so tall and cope with these extreme natural events, and what all this cutting-edge engineering has in common with a bird cage, bamboo, boat masts and seat belts.

 

Richard embarks on a fantastic journey of discovery that will take him from the mines of 17th-century England via the early skyscrapers of Chicago to the top of one of the most advanced buildings in the world.

[自由時報200929] 英國內政部長在九日提交國會的書面聲明中說,決定給予台灣民眾自今年三月三日起前往英國不逾六個月之非工作性質免簽證待遇。台灣是英國此次內政檢討中唯一新增適用免簽證訪英的國家,國人未來赴英將因此節省數千至上萬元台幣的簽證申請費。

可省數千至萬元簽證費

該聲明為英國政府自二○○七年三月以來,針對歐洲經濟體以外國家與地區的國民訪英簽證所進行之「首次簽證制度全球檢討」的最終決定,結果顯示,台灣對英國之移民管制係低風險國家,訪英國停留不逾六個月且非赴英工作之台灣護照持有者,自今年三月三日起即可免除申請訪英簽證。

據統計,英方發給我國人的觀光簽證數量在二○○六年為一萬五千三百二十一件,二○○七年為一萬二千九百一十件;近年來我國人赴英觀光人數每年約四萬人。目前英國國民訪台可享有停留卅天的免簽證待遇。

目前全球共有超過一百個國家、約四分之三的人口,仍需申請觀光簽證方得訪英。至於目前給予台灣免簽證的國家則包括日本、南韓、新加坡等數十國。其中,日本是在二○○五年八月期間先後由眾院、參院通過永久免除台灣觀光客簽證的出入國暨難民法特例法案,並在同年九月廿六日生效實施。

The Visa Waiver Test measured travel from every country and region beyond the European Economic Area and Switzerland against a range of criteria including illegal immigration, crime and security concerns.

As part of the Test we also considered whether any countries or regions posed a sufficiently low risk such as to warrant the lifting of an existing visitor visa requirement, so as to facilitate legitimate travel.

In the final stage of the Test we worked closely with eleven countries whose nationals had been identified as posing a sufficiently high risk as to warrant, in principle, the introduction of a visa requirement for all travellers. We worked with the countries concerned over a six month period to find ways to reduce the risks posed to the UK without the need for a visa requirement.

We have been able to make real progress with a number of countries through a combination of advice, training and improved working relations on migration matters. As a result some of the eleven countries have made concrete improvements to the immigration, border control and identity systems which would not have happened without the Test. Even where a visa regime is the final outcome, we have improved co-operation on migration matters with the countries concerned. At the end of this process we assessed the overall progress made by each country, and whether or not it was sufficient to mitigate the risks to the UK……..

 

We have also concluded that Taiwan presents a low migration risk and we will be lifting the visitor visa requirement for Taiwan passport holders coming to the UK for less than six months, and who are not seeking to work. This will take effect from 3 March.

 

……….All the new visa regimes will be implemented to the high standard of the UK’s current visa operations.

 

The Visa Waiver Test is ongoing. We will conduct a full review in due course to ensure that benefits are fully realised and costs understood. In the meantime we will continue to work with all these countries and regions to build on the excellent

working relationships we have developed during the Visa Waiver Test process to make sure we effectively secure the UK Border.
