Category Archives: Filming While Walking

This is film taken as I walk along. Something I started to do quite a lot of. I enjoy the company of viewers on long walks to lose weight, and usually I engage in rambling monologues which oddly some of you seem to enjoy! At the same time there is the dimension of seeing a different place, a real-life moving canvas and the occasional interactions with people on the way. It’s one of my favorite formats and certainly among the easiest and least time-consuming to do as I would be walking anyway!

The following is the original comment from 12 years ago. I kept it in as its relevance to today is somehow abiding.

Gdansk Zoo


Original YT playout date: 25 January 2009
Duration: 1:09:05

A winter visit to Gdansk Zoo. Visiting zoos in winter has some advantages as well as disadvantages. Some of the animals are sheltering out of view, but you have more space and resources to yourself and fewer interruptions for filming.

Original YT playout date: 22 January 2009
Duration: 12:06

A look at the park near the Soviet War Memorial by Zwirki i Wigury in Warsaw, with the running commentary you may have come to expect. This is a sort of “blog on the hoof” style with attention to nature and history. Enjoy!

Kings Langley (Uncle Davey’s Herts Content S3 E 18/18)


Original YT playout date: 20 December 2008
Duration: 1:02:04

I have uploaded this out of the playlist order by accident. I thought I was uploading the last Not The Tommy Boyd Show. Hence you hear me saying this is my last UK one, but there still is one more UK one.

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!

Uncle Davey’s Herts Content S2 E7 – The North West of Hemel Hempstead


 

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.
