World’s Largest Lightsaber

This is BT Tower:

This is the BT Tower on Star Wars Blu-Ray release day in London:


A brilliant blue beam of light emanating from the top, 200 meters into the Sky.  Anthony Daniels, the actor who portrayed the Droid C-3PO in all six of the Star Wars movies flipped the switch that activated the Spotlights.

The tower stands 580ft tall not counting the antennas on top and opened in 1966, later that year it was a focal point of the William Hartnell Doctor Who serial The War Machines.  In The War Machines, the top of the tower was occupied by the self aware supercomputer WOTAN, which tried to take over the world using mind controlled human slaves and it’s War Machines.
