Jerusalem Avenue


Original YT playout date: 14 February 2009
Duration: 10:45

It’s Aleje Jerozolimskie in Warsaw, and I’m in a grumpy mood. I’ve wanted to tear the London Steak House apart in a rant for some time. It counts as a blot on the landscape as far as I’m concerned. Why can’t they get this place put under new management?

Train of History


Original YT playout date: 3 February 2009
Duration: 30:40

History is like a train, with one carriage inexorably drawing the next one on, the track already laid ahead of time, the only matter for discussion being how much delay there will be and how well you can keep occupied on the journey.

So what better place for me to review H G Wells’ Short History of the World? Enjoy!”

Pomeranian Interlude


Original YT playout date: 19 December 2008
Duration: 10:47

Here’s the rest of the Pomeranian footage that you saw something of in the Walcz video recently, this time off the Vado. The fine meal we had in great company in the Hunting Palace hotel in Świdwin. I can tell you that Pomerania is a fine part of the world. I always like going there.

Take This Walcz


Original YT playout date: 13 December 2008
Duration: 33:50

Walcz (pronounced “vouch”) is the name of a pleasant Pomeranian town derived from the Kashubian word Wolcz and once called Deutsch Krone.

From there, we drive on to observe some more of the idyll that is the golden Polish autumn in the rolling forest roads of Pomerania.

The precise co-ordinates of the lovely woodland restaurant shown here are as follows:

geo:lat=53.422141645164224
geo:lon=16.387996673583984

I definitely recommend it.

Original YT playout date: 22 November 2008
Duration: 11:48

I take an “arty farty” film in Qubus hotel in Katowice. This shows the room in my usual format, as well as a bit of panorama from the windows. But also there’s an experimental part you might like…

Uncle Davey’s Cyprus #5/6 – Karatello


Original YT playout date: 20 May 2008

The Karatello in Limassol. What a night we had, of great Cyprus food and live music. This is the fifth part of the Cyprus series. The Karatello restaurant is in an old carob mill near the former port and is a large eating venue capable of handling sizeable conferences competently.

Huliganov’s Barcelona Experience #6 – Hasta la Vista, Barcy!


Original YT playout date: 5 May 2008
Duration: 13:28

Part Six shows our fond farewell to Barcelona, and contains a fairly amusing, in retrospect, altercation with the hotel staff over a small matter which will be apparent if you watch it through…

Uncle Davey’s Cyprus #2 In and Around the Mediterranean Beach hotel


Original YT playout date: 3 May 2008
Duration: 11:52

“Part Two of my Cyprus series – and I put the new camera through its paces to see whether I could compete with these “”papirazzi”” types…

Would I recommend this hotel? Yes I would. I am likely to come back on my own budget with my family, at some point.”

Huliganov’s Turkish Experience #20 – “Back to Cicek Pasaji”


Original YT playout date: 7 April 2008
Duration: 8:18

If a restaurant has been good, I like to go there again. So, more great live music and food shots, as well as a visit to the celebrated Koska shop, the home of Turkish Delight!

Nice to see the same faces and hear the music and taste the food. I hope to go there again one day. I wonder if the same guys will be there.

Huliganov’s Barcelona Experience #4 – Una Comida Memorablisima


Original YT playout date: 6 April 2008
Duration: 10:08

A Most Memorable Meal was something I recently was treated to by business partners in Barcelona. You can see it, unfortunately I can’t pass on the taste or the smell of it but suffice it to say it was perfect.

For all I know there may be a whole lot more such restaurants in Barcelona, but I can wholly recommend this one, Restaurante La Dama on Avinguyda Diagonal.
