My not so secret diary

UK Tour Documentary

The UK tour is over. Touring the UK is always my favourite tour. It's a boring reason why, i'm a 'homely' person at heart and the familiarity with what's around me settles me. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE to travel, but there is no place like home. Over the course of the tour I have put together just over 50 minutes total footage spread over 5 episodes nearing half a million views (stats right at date of posting). At time of writing this i'm sat in bed at home drinking some tea before I grade and finish episode 6 which is from the European shows in Brussels, Paris and Amsterdam from last week. Once that is finished I have a little break before heading off to San Juan in Puerto Rico and starting the next episodes on the South American Tour.

In all honesty I don't know when this series will end, I don't want it to. It's a format I love because it can be both planned and unplanned. The majority of what you see just happens, and I like that uncertainty. If nothing happened, i'd drag one of the boys aside and film an interview piece to either talk about something that's happened or just concentrate on a particular aspect of the tour and cover that instead. I have many subjects backed up we can talk about, so i'm not concerned i'll have nothing to show. In reality, the series will probably end when the next DVD is needed, as to make a feature there is so much footage needed it ties my hands with regard to other formats. Here's each episode from the series so far...
