Entering Leopolis – the City of Lions (Ukraine Series #2/10)


Original YT playout date: 25 March 2009
Duration: 31:37

In the second part of my Ukrainian series you’ll see one of what for me is one of the more interesting films, where we drive my car into Lwow, western Ukraine. The last 16 kms of the journey into Lwow is unbroken footage, showing the foothills of the Carpathians or Roztochia, and the uglyish northern suburbs to the fine city.

Wroclaw Revisited


Original YT playout date: 15 February 2009
Duration: 52:08

Here’s an interesting one. The original video length is 52 minutes and 8 seconds. I did use back then various pieces of music in the mistaken belief that I was doing labels a favour by introducing them via my films to a new set of people. In most cases this has been reason to take all the ad revenues and share them among the music providers with nothing left for me, as though there was nothing in the video other than their music. I have never seen the logic of this, but it is not the main problem.

Take This Walcz


Original YT playout date: 13 December 2008
Duration: 33:50

Walcz (pronounced “vouch”) is the name of a pleasant Pomeranian town derived from the Kashubian word Wolcz and once called Deutsch Krone.

From there, we drive on to observe some more of the idyll that is the golden Polish autumn in the rolling forest roads of Pomerania.

The precise co-ordinates of the lovely woodland restaurant shown here are as follows:

geo:lat=53.422141645164224
geo:lon=16.387996673583984

I definitely recommend it.
