The Tax Research videos

Posted on

I began making videos with Mark Cooney of Spotted in Ely about three months ago, and this list of those we've made has grown pretty quickly.

There's no pretence that these are the ultimate polished product. Many are done in one take, and all are unscripted. But I hope they address issues of interest.

The wiki page of the current titles is here, and below

I’d like to thank Mark Cooney of Spotted in Ely for all his support in this project, because the channel was his suggestion and without him it would not be possible.  And since he’s paid by the adverts that will be a part of this programme in due course, please accept that they are part of the package that makes this possible.
