Behind the Scenes for 14th to 20th October 2018


Take a glimpse behind the scenes as I produce my videos during the week. Each day from Sunday to Saturday I record a couple of minutes of nonsense highlighting the day’s activities. It is then edited into one seamless presentation for you to enjoy!

I have been to a few churches this week filming wit the lovely Cynthia Julian, but also a historian. I have visited my bonny grandson and been to a ploughing match near Petworth.

Sussex County Ploughing Match 2018


Today I am at the Sussex County Ploughing Match exploring the annual event. My guide is farmer Lee Dallyn who instructs me on the history and nature of the ploughing match. This year the event took place on his farm just south of Byworth, nr Petworth, in West Sussex and featured ploughman operating vintage to modern tractors, as well as the traditional horse drawn plough.

Ploughing matches are great fun for enthusiasts of the countryside and supporters of farming traditions. I hope you enjoy the video.

A Walk From Avebury to Windmill Hill in Wiltshire


This is the last of our videos from our trip to Avebury in Wiltshire this year (2018). Marq English and I take a walk from the lovely church, St James’ to Windmill Hill, one of the first populated places in the UK where numerous bell barrows can be found.

We even risk life and limb as we navigate a field of cows! I hope you have enjoyed our Avebury videos.

The Standing Stones of Avebury


I am in Avebury in Wiltshire with my friend Marq English. Today we are joined by Rob Martins to discuss the mysterious standing stones put there by our ancestors.

No one really knows why the giant sarsen stones were hauled from the Marlborough Hills and positioned into a series of circles within a deep encompassing ditch. It is the subject of great debate, however.

Marq, Rob and myself join the many hundreds of thousands who have speculated about these amazing towering lumps of rock. I hope you enjoy our musings.
