I've weeded out most of the obvious or old ones (although I think the fort cannons may be old). The Tokyo building we know from previous efforts: it's the Don Quixote dept. store. There are shots of India, a drum from Lijiang, and some Carnivale-looking shots. I'm not sure about the Potala ID. The helo livery is Zermatt Air.

Well, the shot of the camera pulling back alongside a GCI jet that's been used since season one has been retired, apparently.

And I'm under the impression that almost all of the locations shots seem to be new from this season, including the Sydney Opera House, and some of the other world landmarks.

That bridge could be the Niteroi/RioCentro bridge. It could be a bridge in Japan...depends on which side they are driving. It is so small I cant tell.

I thought it was the Potala Palace, but checking back I think it's not. :(

The Niteroi bridge looks good; here's the GE view (looking west).

I don't know if I am repeating anything, but the first snow cap mountain scene was indeed from Zermatt. (See the mountain: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Gornergrat03.jpg)

And regarding the helicopter, it is NOT from Season 12. :(

Thank you slowhatch, cocoa, DrRox, the schnauzers, weihen, and TARJunkie!! :hearts:

I have a full set to embed later on today!!

I think these are the nicest ones we have had since Bill Pruitt left...puzzling these out used to be our MOST favorite thing...this was a step in the right direction!!

I really like this new intro, as most of the images directly refer to places in this season. The animals are especially awesome.

I thought that was a nice touch too.

Bill Pruitt is one of our most favorite ever TAR producers. He left us after Season 13 for new adventures.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0699218/filmoseries#tt0285335

The Intro Caps used to be one of the highlights of the year for us. They were chockablock full of micro second clues to each current season...we would pore over them for days and weeks...it was one of the most clever things ever and we loved and appreciated it.

So when Bill moved on...the Intro Caps became a generic rehash.... the magic was gone.

And we finally figured out that these had been Bill's baby and a true labor of love for him as well.

He is sorely missed.

I can get a little more detail out of the sunset cap, but I'm not a photoshop expert.

Thanks slowhatch!! I was trying to find that as well. Could it be in Liechtenstein??
