WIMPS.tv Top 10 Videos


These are the top videos for 2011 that my team at WIMPS.tv have produced. Fantastic work.

You can also see 11 – 20 here

1. Rihanna in North Belfast

She caused a sensation with her visit to a field in Bangor and a trip to north Belfast where our camera team caught up with her. By far this is the most popular video on WIMPS.tv this year. And there was a special bonus for us when it was selected to be shown as part of the MTV European Music Awards.


2. Where Is My Public Servant?

This one is about us – our own promotional video is in second place.


3. Gay Cure?

Another sensational story during the summer of 2011. Read about it here or watch the video for the story.


4. Guy Spence


Top political interview is with one of the youngest councillors in Belfast – probably even Northern Ireland. In the run up to the elections WIMPS interviewed representatives from each party. Most popular political interview is with DUP’s Guy Spence.
