St David’ Day Greetings from Russia!


Original playout date: 27 February 2008
Duration: 10:12

It’s that time again, St David’s Day is on March the first, and so Huliganov celebrates the Welsh people’s national day with a song in Welsh, just like last year, when he sand “Myfanwy” to a capacity crowd of his webcam.

Suo Gan is a fine Welsh lullaby, and one of the most broadly heard snatches of the Welsh language in the world, thanks to its appearance in Spielberg’s “Empire of the Sun”.

True Pedantry


Original playout date: 26 February 2008
Duration: 22:12

A Huliganov Rant (done now but ostensibly for October 2007, as I missed that month).

What’s this all about? Well, right now, in the UK there are a few books and broadcasts going on about the so-called walking diet or the 10,000 steps diet, all of which revolves around the use of a pedometer, which is like a mechanism clipped onto the belt that clicks a counter forward every time it moves up and down. However, there is a problem with this whole concept, as I show in the rant.

Huliganov’s Turkish Experience #12 – Arrival in Ankara


Original playout date: 24 February 2008
Duration: 18:48

Here’s my taxi ride into Ankara. Once again I only get the chance to film in the night, which is not so good from the photographic viewpoint, but at least you get an idea of what it’s like to take a taxi into Ankara from Esenboga airport, some 35 km to the North East of Ankara. This film contains about half of that ride.

Huliganov’s Turkish Experience #9 – Architectural Turkish Delights!


Original playout date: 17 February 2008
Duration: 16:39

I remember this day in January 2016 as the first time I had walked a full 16 km since my youth. This corresponds o an early point in my now 11 year attempt to lose weight and gain strength in walking, which has been an up and down journey, but which has probably enabled me to live this long, as I was not in a good state before, unable to walk many kilometres, even just a few months prior to this.

Here are some of the lovey things I saw in the earlier part of that day after the church visit I had in the morning.

Huliganov’s Turkish Experience #8 – Chalcedon visit

The eighth in the Huliganov’s Turkish Experience series. I visit the Church in Chalcedon, or Kaddikoy, where the church had a major council in the fourth century. The style has changed since then, but certain things don’t change…
