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.”

Huliganov’s Russia #4/11 – Red Square


Original playout date: 7 November 2007
Duration: 12:27

This time it is the delights of Red Square that we see. Please watch to the end, not only is the song a favorite of mine, but it is accompanied by an interesting new technique of fading the gallery shots to painterly effects instead of fading them out and into one another. I hadn’t used before and I’d still welcome your feedback on whether you liked it or not.
