This web page is divided into two section:- This first part is made up of links to some astounding as well as historic video footage I have recorded over the years and to make it easy to navigate I have grouped them in a few 'Playlists' based on their subject matter (If you want to see all the playlist available please go to AndysVideo.com Direct).
The second part is again links but this time it is links to selected Websites I have produced that I hope you may also find interesting.
These are older videos from my years at National Rescue. This is not quality videoing, more often than not, I was working under pressure so videoing became secondary to the job. It shows accidents on (or off) the A3, M3 and M25 and how we dealt with them. You can also see some of our aircraft recoveries we carried out pre 2000. Anyone in recovery today, may wonder how we lived through it, without the help of H&S (I know I do!)
This playlist shows some of the Aircraft and Vehicle Recoveries, or Movements I have filmed after 2000. It includes the recovery of the Vimy replica from MBW into the Museum and some of the work we have done in the Stratosphere Chamber. It also shows you when I was the guest of the REMA at Bordon and takes a look at my ex London transport AEC MK1 Militant Recovery Vehicle.
This playlist contains miscellanies videos that are associated with Brooklands that I made when MD of National Rescue from around 1983 up to 1999. These includes the Recovery of many of the Museum's current Aircraft, early site clearance videos showing parts of Brooklands long gone and there is some rare footage of early fly-ins. It also includes some of the fund raising trips, with some live Viscount Cockpit footage.
This playlists is made up of recent videos (since 2000) I have made around Brooklands. These include Aircraft Recoveries, the transportation of the Vimy, behind the scenes at some of the Museums weekend events like the Double Twelve and New Year motoring events. Inside the famous Barnes Wallis Stratosphere Chamber. Moving the Brooklands Concorde. Aviation fly-ins and much more.
Brooklands Museum Emergency Services 'Mayday' events, used to be held each year on the May Day Monday (Bank Holiday) and it attracted Emergency Vehicles from all sectors and services, including Fire Brigades, Police Forces, Ambulance Services, Recovery Services and The Military. Here you can see many staged incidents often from a better position or closer than the public can get.
A collection of Aerial Videos that I have made with a Quad-copter (or drone). Most are at Brooklands Museum, but there are also videos of important buildings both in the UK and abroad, plus various landscape views. The collection is growing so check back often and if you want to talk to me about a project filming a property or event you are involved with please do.
These videos are mainly for family and friends, but if you are interested in seeing the world, or have a sense of humour you may find some entertaining. We have visited some interesting place, like the Californian Highway Patrol 10 4 event in Hollywood, or the Mash 4077 Camp film. Plus touring New Zealand Africa and the USA
This link will take you to a playlist of all my videos in the order they were posted. In other words depending on where you set the filter, you can see my latest video, or the first one I posted and then work down / up the list. Please remember however this is the date they were posted not necessarily the date they were filmed.
All my Aviation videos (old and new) in the one playlist that deals with a few of the aircraft recoveries I have been involved with and other aviation related items. Aircraft include Vickers Valiant, Vanguard, Varsity, VC10, Viking Vimy and Viscount. Also present is rare footage of the Brooklands Sopwith Camel actually flying, plus the recovery and later relocating of the Brooklands Concorde G-BBDG.
This section takes you to some relevant to this site web-pages. Here you can read about the history of vehicle recovery, appreciate TV's Hill Street Blues. You can find out about that most famous of Met Police Garages TDV, or order up a tracking device for your car or boat.
