They couldn’t drag me away… (PV #36)

Original YT playout date: 26 June 2010
Duration: 12:29

The scariest thing I’ve done this year was get in the chair lift in Prague Zoo. It doesn’t stop for anyone. I wasn’t sitting very square in it and the drop was quite a long way to the wire net below.

When they saw me get on it, the lift operators started calling on the name of the second person of the Trinity and His earthly mother, which didn’t bode well.  Anyway, I filmed the whole thing. I supposed the ski lift could drag me away despite their fears that it might not hold, but the wild horses to be found at the top of it couldn’t drag me out of Prague Zoo before closing time, even though the battery was only good for the six small films you have here. I could certainly do another six at least with what’s left to show, but I’ll save that for another time.

Astronomical! (PV 28)

Original YT playout date: 23 May 2010
Duration: 21:44

We see the old town of Prague in the Easter time, in the evening decked out with its Easter markets, and get a distincty sense of deja vu. The Czechs are canny people, and are not going to shell out on two sets of wooden huts, one for Christmas and the other for Easter, are they?

Returning from Decin chattin in the car (PV 27)

Original YT playout date: 16 May 2010
Duration: 29:28

Here the scenery we saw going out to Decin is seen from the car, which gives a different perspective, but also my colleague evokes a long bit of audio from me covering the Krtek cartoon mole and why he hasn’t got his own restaurant chain, saturday-morning pictures in the cinema when I was a boy, the Eurovision song contest, Turkish music and the nature of filming travelogue for YouTube. Those of you who have got to sleep listening to my drivel in the past will find this as useful a soporific as the former stuff has been.
