One of the greatest pleasures making the Bald Explorer videos is meeting new people and working with guest presenters on the show. As well as Martin Snow, Harriet and little Lola, regulars on the channel, I am thrilled to have Julia Hartley-Neal joining me on my travels. Unconventional, enthusiastic and utterly lovely, Julia brings a certain magic to the productions.
Our recent visit to the fabulous Crowhurst Yew, an ancient tree residing in the graveyard of St George’s church in the tiny Surrey village, was a joy and Julia made it extra special with her love and fascination for nature.
Taking people with me on my travels brings the videos alive. Ed Warren from Northchapel, Elizabeth Housden from Liss, Chris Monk from Newhaven and of course, Dumpman, (Chris Bedford) from Henfield are just the sort of folk that make the programmes fascinating, increasing interest from the growing audience. I constantly seek equally enthusiastic guest presenters to accompany me on my travels.
Julia and I have more videos planned, not least a mini adventure, a three day expedition to mystical Glastonbury in Somerset in April. This trip, fully funded my my wonderful patrons, promises to produce some fabulous viewing. Keep coming back to the website to discover what the Bald One and his lovely cohorts are up to in the coming months. This year promises to very special indeed.
