We’re in the middle of another lockdown which means opportunities to go outside are few and far between, and that living vicariously through YouTube is the order of the day. I’ve suddenly realised the appeal of those “slow television” videos, particularly where people are just walking around looking at stuff.
If you like a bit more content than that, I’ve also found just the thing! Tom Scott has a YouTube channel with a variety of subjects but I’ve really been enjoying his Amazing Places series. He uncovers all kinds of interesting facts about places you wouldn’t even think existed, for example, the latest video about the road used extensively in TV dramas.
You bet your life I’ve been looking at every road closely on TV shows ever since.
Other videos I’ve found fascinating:
- Walking the Most Dangerous Path in Britain
- The World’s First Solar Powered Train
- The Bridge That’s in Two Countries at the Same Time
There are many more that are worth a look, and it’ll be interesting to see what else he comes up with in the future!
