Category Archives: Travel and Places

I go to a lot of places, usually for work. I have a “ritual” of filming in them after hours, and some of the series of films I have made, as well as other writings, are in this section. These vlogs will be subcategorized by country and visit.

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!

Katya Zheleznova from Samara in Russia weds my friend and fellow evangelical Christian Przemyslaw Gola in the delightfully named Silesian town of Lazy. I was priveleged to be invited to attend. Events conspired for me to be too late for the ceremony, but here is footage from the marriage supper afterwards, and some photos of the happy couple and guests. Polish viewers don’t miss Przemek’s internet portal on http://www.protestanci.org – it has the biggest audio library of sermons in Polish anywhere online.

Uncle Davey’s Herts Content S2 E10, My Mother’s Garden


Original YT playout date: 20 August 2008
Duration: 13:28

This is a little cameo piece showing my mother’s garden and the facade of the house I grew up in. I consider it a privilege to have been born to sensible, loving parents and able to live in a nice environment. I only hope, with the UK going the way it is, that it stays that way for more children growing up. As it is, I see both positive and negative trends, with left-wing rule in our country threatening to reduce the glorious heritage into a drug fuelled mess observed by riot police and people in rooms with screens up the wall linked to CCTV on every corner.

On the other hand, if we are only able to assert our culture and our values, we shold be able to restore Britain to what it was, even with the people we have now in the country, and their very diverse backgrounds. If we look at the way we have re-emerged in the arena of sport, I think that we can do this in other areas also.

Sport has been able to function because there has been more by way of funding than by way of regulation.

The other reason is that in Sport the best are identifiable. Not everyone is a winner.

In a situation where 30% of A level students are presenting with A grades, and the universities have no way of telling who the genuinely deserving candidates are, our precious higher educational resources are not being allocated according to merit. Also the cutting of grants which was done under labour, not the conservatives, means that all in all a very average child with rich parents has a better chance of graduating a university in today’s Britain than an outstanding talent who happened to be born to a poorer family. This is not the way forward for our country.

Uncle Davey’s Herts Content S2 E8 – Whipsnade Zoo part 1 of 2


 

Original YT playout date: 10 August 2008
Duration: 33:25

Whipsnade zoo is part of the Zoological Society of London’s set of world leading animal parks. It is an important conservation centre and part of the contemporary Noah’s Ark. It is also one of my favorite spots on the planet. This part of my film of our visit is one circuit by car. Closer looks on foot will be in part two.

Whipsnade is not strictly in Herts, but as it’s just outside it qualifies for my “Uncle Davey’s Herts Content” series on Hemel Hempstead et environs.

PC lackeys are a bigger problem than the actual one


Original YT playout date: 10 August 2008
Duration: 5:56

The Muslims may want to change England into their own system, but that’s their way. They can’t help themselves and converting under duress and fighting for more and more territory is all they have ever known. The ones who *should* know better are the western namby- pamby liberals who won’t let us protect ourselves and our culture because they are still shocked by what happened under fascism in Germany, and what was done to the innocent Jews. And so now we daren’t stand up and react assertively and protect ourself even when it is warranted, as now when a real threat to our culture and society comes along, not just the economic success of a different group within our diversity, which anyone is welcome to. These people are programmed by their deen to destroy us and the Jews together, and it’ll be all down to people in our own group who have liberal ideas they naively sucked in from the media, and also people like lawyers who win rights for these people in exchange for making money for themselves at the expense of everyone else in society.

Can we finally understand that “politically correct” is a way of saying “incorrect” and bring some common sense and assertiveness back in the way we deal with these people? The ones who should be vilified are not the misguided believers in Islam, who are the victims in this anyway, but the people who are from our society but who are standing by and applauding or denying as Islam gains ground in Europe. If they want to know what fascism really is, all they need to do is wait till Islam is in control in Europe. But then it will be too late.”
