Sophie’s Class visit the European Bison

20 December 2021

Original YT playout date: 29 May 2010
Duration: 49:29

This is a first ever on my channel – Sophie had a school trip to see European bison, deer, wolves, lynxes, wild boar and wild horses that there are in the Bialowiezska forest, which is the border between Poland and Belarus. It is the only place that the wisent, or European bison survives in its wild state, although some of them are in enclosures so that the public can look at them.

Sophie asked to take my old video camera with her and this is what she did, with no help from anybody. Even the postproduction I simply sat and took her instructions on the font for the titles, the colours, the choice of background music. could we have a film-maker in the making?

Tania is Eight

Original YT playout date: 16 March 2010
Duration: 12:14

“We all celebrate
For Tania is eight
Her cake we all ate
And thought it was great
But Mimsy the Yorkie
And Pushkin the Cat
They thought it was dorky
And didn’t want that
They both prefer meat
Not things that are sweet
But at half Pushkin’s weight
Mimsy nearly got ate.”

Huli Bit Me (Charlie autotune remix muckaround)

Original YT playout date: 9 January 2010
Duration: 1:25

Yes indeed, it’s another blatant bandwagon jump by Usenetposts Channel, as we do another remix of the famous “Charlie Bit My Finger” viral. I fully expect this to go every single bit as viral as all the other Charlie bandwagon jumpers have, and if not, I’ll jolly well want to know why!

A Game of Chess

Original YT playout date: 25 December 2009

Merry Christmas! Many young people around the world will open their presents this morning and find their very first chess set among the contents of their stockings, sleeping bags, or aerodrome windsocks that they leave out for their presents the night before. Eagerly, these kids search YouTube for some help in getting started with the Royal Game – and alight on this newly posted video. Here, they hope, they might find some help getting started with the game, get some tips for beginners, get something to sharpen there play. Well they might. But then again, which is far more likely, they might not. But a good time was had by all, anyway…

If you want to play turn based chess on line then the place I recommend is http://www.itsyourturn.com I’ve been a member there for about seven and a half years. My user name is Uncle Davey, so find me and give me a game there! You get to play a certain number of moves a day even without paying a cent, while the unlimited moves and ad-free environment is a very reasonable sub.

La Voix

Original YT playout date: 17 May 2009
Duration: 3:13

“Move over, Malena Ernman! Little eight-year old Sophie is gonna re-set the whole standard for the singing of La Voix, the Swedish entry to this year’s Eurovision song contest. I thought this was the best entry, although I have to give kudos to Alexandr Rybak who wrote and performed his own winning entry for Norway, despite actually being Belarussian.

No more “”Norvege, nul points”” this year. Rybak’s entry had an record breaking score (helped no doubt by the fact that there are now 42 voting countries, not just 18 or so like when ah were a lad). Still, I was sorry to see Sweden’s siren only about half way down the scoreboard when all 42 countries had given their verdicts.
