Royal Botanical Gardens, Madrid (Huliganov’s Madrid Experience #9/11)


Original YT playout date: 21 June 2008
Duration: 18:17

This is pretty much what it says on the tin. If you like plants, you’ll love this. The only problem is, not may people watch botanical videos unless Alan Titchmarsh or Charlie Dimmock are doing them. Still, in the end, I always remember what my chief in the old TV station said; “you don’t make television for yourself” – thankfully, this ain’t television, this is youtube, and my rule is simple: if I like something, I do it anyway!

So watch out, Alan and Charlie! Victor Huliganov may not be on the war path, but he’s certainly going up the garden path, and while his puns are pathological, at least they’re not pathetic. Mostly.

Poetry Recital on Madrid Street (Huliganov’s Madrid Experience #8/11)


Original YT playout date: 14 June 2008
Duration: 21:11

A poetry recital in the street and a lot more in the eighth of the series on Madrid. Those of you who asked to hear more of the Julio Iglesias piece “Corazon, corazon” will be pleased here. If you want to buy your own copy you’ll find it on my astore. That’d only make me a couple of cents, and the only reason I mention it is that the piece is not easy to find, and quite a few of you have commented in earlier parts of this series that you want to get hold of the product.
