Some of your and my favourites from the 400 odd videos I’ve posted on Twittervlog.tv, Fatgirlinohio.org and Workingformydad.com between 2005 and 2016
I’m talking to Jonathan Dimbleby at 1.15am during our 50k overnight walk for Dimbleby Cancer Care.
Jonathan was amazingly speedy – he started 40 minutes after me, and finished an hour before! This is the moment his group sped past us, so I turned on my 360 camera as he swept us along – before he disappeared off into the distance.
Get a sense of what it was like to walk with us at 2am in this 360º video where you can look all around.

On Friday June 10th, Kate and I did an OVERNIGHT walk of 50km (that’s 30 miles) all around London, for Dimbleby Cancer Care – leaving at 9pm and arriving back around 8.30am – and we’ve raised 5x our £500 target so far at http://justgiving.com/RuAndKate because of our incredibly lovely friends.
Dimbleby Cancer Care work with the NHS at Guy’s and St Thomas’s hospitals to provide support to people with cancer, their families and carers. They are amazing. They were originally set up after Richard Dimbleby died aged 52 in 1965, the first public figure to speak openly about having cancer, which was a huge thing at the time.

The walking was the fun bit; the hard bit was done by you all giving up so much of your own money to support DCC. We aimed for £500, and so far you’ve given £2581, which has been coming in all night, so YOU ARE ALL THE BEST (and whenever we checked, it was like rocket fuel for us to keep feeling happy and power on ignoring the soreness and fatigue)
I also posted a photo story of Kate and my walk here:
Last week we walked a 25 mile loop around the South Downs Way over 2 days, staying overnight at an old inn. This is a 15 minute collection of moments I filmed on the Theta so that you can walk it with us!
It was wild and windy, and there were lots of pubs and cliffs and sheep. The South Downs Way is an ancient path in the south coast of England. Bill Bryson described this part of it as “one of the great walks of England… On a sunny day like this one, it is a world of simple, bright elements; green land, white cliffs, deep blue sea, matching sky.”
I shot and cut this on holiday last week, and now I’m busy at work this week – so although I want to cut it down and add titles, I thought I’d post it here now as a first draft.
I’d be interested to know how it works for you in VR as a longer video, with time to look around and see the sights.See comments "VR 360º Video: A 2 Day Walk along the South Downs Way (in 15 minutes)"
