The Wars of the Warsaw Mafias


Original YT playout date: 12 October 2008
Duration: 5:30

Using the Creative Vado discrete small size, I was able to risk snatching some covert footage of an altercation in Ochota. A “debt collecting” team from one organisation making a subtle but very meaningful statement outside the home of another prominent organization member. Thankfully on this occasion the violence did not get out of hand…

Uncle Davey’s Herts Content S2 E17 – Leighton Buzzard to Pitstone


Original YT playout date: 8 September 2008
Duration: 35:06

This is a canalside walk in two parts (which are also parts 17 and 18 respectively of the larger series from our holiday in the UK in the summer of 2008).

Towards the end of this episode a quite remarkable natural drama plays out before our eyes whereby a seagull attacks a canalside heron and gets seen off by a crow. The inland birds sticking up for each other against an intruder from the coast? Hopefully you will enjoy this walk though some of the natural beauty that has emerged around the man-made canal, and also enjoy the background music selected for your listening pleasure.

Uncle Davey’s Herts Content S2 E15, Nicky Line!


Original YT playout date: 1 September 2008
Duration: 1:07:32

Here is a full showing of the Nicky Line, a disused railway line connecting Hemel Hempstead, Redbourn and Harpenden, now a public footpath used for walks. On the way my family intercept me at Redbourn for lunch, and in the end I still have space for a little footage of Harpenden, a lovely small town where people take Australian lizards for walks instead of dogs!

Original YT playout date: 9 August 2008
Duration: 1:02:03

This is apparently blocked worldwide, thanks to a couple of songs being regarded as more important than all the rest of the video, despite being replaced bby YT’s technology. Please let me know if you can in fact hear it. It sounds in fact like a load of souls roasting in hell.

Uncle Davey’s Herts Content S2 E1 – Journey Over to Herts


Original YT playout date: 12 July 2008
Duration: 25:34

Ironically this is being uploaded on a day (6th May 2019) when I am making a similar journey from the UK to Poland in the reverse direction. Already for several years Stryków is less significant, as the motorways go right through now. Still, nice trip down memory’s country rther too narrow lanes.

It’s a second series of Uncle Davey’s Herts Content. This time we go there by car, unlike last time in the plane. Here we see Strykow in the days when the motorway didn’t go all the way to Warsaw.

A Warsaw Evening in the company of Mr Alan Heath


Original YT playout date: 8 June 2008
Duration: 39:51

It’s a pleasant Warsaw evening, just the ticket for a chat with another prolific youtuber, and Alan Heath (channel name “alanheath”) is one of Poland’s most prolific, and like me he is a non-Pole living here. He is also the provider of quite a few of the Viz letters, and so if you see the name Alan Heath in the letters page on Viz, yes, this is one and the same man!
