Holiday in Alsace #12/12 – The journey home


Original playout date: 8 December 2007
Duration: 13:17

Yes, we’ve reached the 12th and final part of the Alsace holiday saga, and I hope that you enjoy the road trip shots, the rare photo of my wife as a 19 year old, the impromptu Borat impersonation and the music of the UK Mr Big (NB not the same as the US group of the same name) and the full version of the song which has started each episode of this series, namely “Ne me quitte pas” by Brel, a song that launched many translations such as Shirley Bassey’s “if you go away” in the 1950s but none of them come in my opinion anywhere near the original, which must be in the top ten French language songs of all time.

Huliganov’s Russia #4/11 – Red Square


Original playout date: 7 November 2007
Duration: 12:27

This time it is the delights of Red Square that we see. Please watch to the end, not only is the song a favorite of mine, but it is accompanied by an interesting new technique of fading the gallery shots to painterly effects instead of fading them out and into one another. I hadn’t used before and I’d still welcome your feedback on whether you liked it or not.
