I went to a presentation by Simon Reeve the other night. Simon who? http://www.simonreeve.co.uk Simon Reeve and I quote is “an adventurer and New York Times bestselling author and TV presenter who has travelled to more than 110 countries”. He is best known in Britain for making really interesting travel programmes, wandering the world as he puts it “thanks to the licence payer”.You should watch them, if you never have.

This blog was just an experiment with a new camera, but in some senses it became a journey down the Tees. I published the photos, but didn't write any script until a few months after - ironically on the day the steel plant was due to come back into production. It was meant to have been back on stream when the photos were taken in December, so whether it'll materialise is another matter. The plant - the 2nd biggest in Europe I understand - was mothballed after Corus and Tata couldn't find enough ... read more
