dc.description.abstractBroadcast Transcript: South Korea has added another dimension to its reputation as the most wired country in the world. Instead of referring to hi-tech communication, however, this refers to hi-wire competition. The world's first high-wire championships were held here in Seoul and drew competitors from nine countries. The 1.2 inch thick wire was strung across the Han River into which at least two competitors plunged. The representative of South Korea recorded a time that was more than 6 minutes slower than the winning time of just over 11 minutes logged by a Chinese wire walker. In communications, the world has gone from wired to wireless. It is hoped, at least by the faint of heart, that we will never see a high-wireless championship... even in South Korea. #ceas #SouthKorea #tsutsui #bleier
