What’s up, ducks?


Original YT playout date: 9 May 2008
Duration: 3:40

They are obviously still very much in love, but sulking. Each is hoping the other will turn around first. They miss each other, although they are only two feet apart, it may as well be another continent.

Original playout date: 1 March 2008
Duration: 8:26

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

Uncle Davey’s Herts Content, #3 “Grand Union Canal”


Original playout date: 23 February 2008
Duration: 9:17

Here is a mainly gallery piece following my recent walk from home to Kings Langley along the towpath of the historic Grand Union Canal, which has linked London and Birmingham since the days of the Industrial Revolution.

New developments seen on most of this, such as the Apsley marina, are all new and in my youth much of this part of the canal was derelict. Not everything in the UK has gone downhill – most of what I’ve photographed in this film is actually evidence of renewal and improvement, and we see how the prestigious canalside homes in some less known Hertfordshire places like Belswains Lane have lifestyles akin to such places as Grantchester or Henley, with prices to match, no doubt.

Minette on the Inter-City Train to Kraków


Original playout date: 27 January 2008
Duration: 15:36

When working in Russian TV I met this delightful trio as their manager was a friend of mine. Most of these songs got banned from our station, but I got given the rights to use for my productions. They were fun people but the band never really got off the ground, being eclipsed by another of his groups, TaTu.

Huliganov’s Russia #10/11 – What friends we had…


Original playout date: 30 December 2007
Duration: 8:00

This episode commemorates the spirit of the people of St Petersburg, their heroism at the time of the blockade, a great genocidal crime committed by Germans and Finns on the people of Leningrad, and the friendliness of people living there today. Features the family and friends I found there that I didn’t even realise I had. In the words of Joel: “We never knew what friends we had, until we came to Leningrad.”

This is the penultimate series, there is an error in the titling at the start saying part nine, when it is part ten of eleven. I didn’t want to recode the film over that small item as nothing is perfect, but I thought I’d better point it out in case anyone is confused.”

“I think you’ll quite like this concept. All of these clips were taken before, during or after actual business meetings I had in Warsaw in the late Summer of 2007. I discovered it’s quite remarkable how many people in business actually take an interest in digital photography and video. Read the rest of this entry
