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 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.

We’re looking at the way architecture in Barcelona is a fusion of older and more modern elements. Maybe not exactly ancient, but quite older stuff next to things from more recent decades.

Uncle Davey’s Herts Content, #11 “Around Water End”


Original playout date: 29 March 2008
Duration: 9:22

Some nice colour on this video again. We look at trout farms, watercress, beautifully composed village scenery and sheep in pasture. What’s not to love?

Don’t miss the images of Hertfordshire pudding stone (which is a real mineral by the way, not just a pleasantry) and the the English pub food in Gaddesden.

One of my nicest galleries from a time I was doing my best to do as much walking as possible and used the camera to encourage that, even though it tended to slow progress right down. Read the rest of this entry
