«Tricolor TV» has entered Guinness World Records
The largest Russian digital TV operator «Tricolor TV» in the presence of the official adjudicator of Guinness World Records has set a record for making «The Longest Line of Bird Nest Boxes». The event was held on April 23 in Moscow, at the Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy, within the All-Russian environmental project «Let’s Help Birds Together!».
The large-scale installation made of 4,000 nest boxes also included birdhouses painted in the styles of TV channels and print media — partners and friends of «Tricolor TV».
The record was fixed by Lena Kuhlmann, adjudicator of Guinness World Records, expert from the organization’s office in Hambourg. The length of the mentioned line was measured by the professional engineer; a laser rangefinder was also used for such measurement. Based on the measurement activity which has lasted about three hours, it has been found that the length of the line of nest boxes exceeds 1,124.3 meters, that is an absolute record. In particular, this is proved by the Guinness World Records certificate which was solemnly handed by Lena Kuhlmann to Alexey Kholodov, General Director of «Tricolor TV».
After the official part of the ceremony, TV channel and media representatives have installed their branded record-making birdhouses at the Tricolor TV Partner Alley. The entertainment program for the participants included also ebru workshop session, balloon twisting, segway races, gyroscooter workshop session, TV remote control tossing and a host of other things.
The exhibition «Tricolor TV Partner Alley» at the Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy will be available for visiting until the end of May 2016.
