I have made better films and photos of the firebug, which is very frequently found in Warsaw, these ones next to the Warsaw office, on the parking space paving blocks we ourselves unpacked all those years earlier.
Find out the reason for the unusual Polish common name of this insect “tramway”…

Another one of the videos done as “David Uncleborough” my impersonation of the narrating style of the veteran bremoaining broadcaster David Attenborough. Only whereas he tends to speak uncritically about evolution, David Uncleborough refers to it with unbelief and cynicism.
I had high hopes of developing a series of “David Uncleborough’s Life on this Planet” spoof nature documentaries but never really got to it. Maybe I will one day.

I rarely do a lot of different voices on one video, but this is one occasion. I do what I hope is a passable
impersonation of David Attenborough (I called this character David Uncleborough and he comes up a couple of times in my films), and also I do a South African, some Huliganov and some Pierre Delauney.
The Hout Bay cape fur seal colony is a beautiful thing to see. This is the part of the world where the great
white shark preys on these creatures, even jumping out of the water to attack them. We didn’t see any of them today, though.
The mountains around are the twelve apostles, very majestic neighbours of the Table Mountain.
