Driving on roads which nowadays are not used much as the motorways are in place. Malbork is the seat of the templars or Teutonic Knights in Poland, or Prussia, as it then was.

A Night in Wrocław


Original YT playout date: 12 April 2008
Duration: 15:48

“Which is pretty much what it says it is. This is a bit different because I’m still getting used to the new editing software I bought. The images are too dark, but I don’t get a lot of leeway there – I film when I’ve got free time, and that usually tends to be the evening hours.

Anyway, enjoy the atmosphere of this stroll, meal and also drive in night-time Wroclaw.”

Rogue Trader


Original playout date: 4 April 2008
Duration: 2:39

I received a private message saying it would be a good idea if I gave the sozzled street trader in the Tczew video a separate clip, so that he’d be seen by more than those few willing to watch through nearly a quarter of an hour film about some remote Polish town.

Tczew (1 of 2)


Original playout date: 29 March 2008
Duration: 14:59

I like Tczew, it’s the old German city of Dirschau, mention in Gunter Grass’s Tin Drum. I have spent quite a few nice times there.

I wasn’t sure if people would like my portrayal style as in Grudziadz another Northern Polish town with a German background, I got a lot of flack, but actualy the likes are 30 on this with only 2 dislikes.

The GPS machine seems to be taking me on a right wild goose chase, into someone’s yard instead of the centre of the town. Those were not exactly the days of google maps and the precision we now have, and that’s bad enough at times.

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.
