From my perspective, the USA dominates YouTube and their videos tend to come in three flavours; very political, very business oriented or entertainment. There are doubtless others, perhaps I’m using the wrong searches, well doubtless I am.
Pretty much all of the US videos I watch are very professionally produced especially the business ones. They put a lot of effort in to production. I sometimes find myself thinking that they are so determined to get as much out of their production as they can, which is absolutely reasonable. But, it can and does leave me breathless. The impression is they don’t take a breath. They aren’t all like that of course, but most of the ones I watch are.
On then to British YouTubers. From what I can tell there are by proportion not a lot. I only really follow very few perhaps five. Over the last few days I have found another husband and wife (uk) team; Paul and Rebecca Whitewick. It helps that a lot of their videos are focussed on the south of England, including Dorset. The most recent one I watched was about an aqueduct the Romans built when the occupied Maiden castle just outside Dorchester. Who would have known that Roman villas with mosaic floors were nearby (well, obviously, a lot of people, but I didn’t).
What I like about their videos are they are relaxed, and they aren’t worried about breathlessly cramming in information and thay also aren’t worried about the cameras they used being in view (carried) when they aren’t actively recording. It’s a kind of “untidiness” that I don’t see elsewhere. This really, seriously does not detract from the enjoyment I get from their programmes, which are well made and entertaining.
I look forward to watching more of them.
