Derek,

Great site. A little slow on the video upload and play, but very nicely put together. Kinda reminds me of the old Wild Kingdom series (I loved that show as a kid).

Cheers,
Ramona

Play hard today, it may be raining tomorrow!

Dear Ramona,

Thanks for that.

We'd love to put some Wild Kingdom on our site too, but we must get permission to use it first! Watch out for more.

Best wishes

Derek

Very cool site Derek. Thanks for sharing.

I tried my hand at natural history for a while and I've worked with a few of the BBC filmmakers you've got in the oral history section, so I'm rally looking forward to taking a listen to them.

Best of luck,
David

Suggestion for content matter which you probably already have. I just heard a portion of a radio program about the woman who was killed in her Kenyan (?) camp. Divorcee of a German filmmaker -- there is probably a new film or book about her. Anyway, her story sounded incredible. Also: Oxford Scientific Films - how do they fit into the story?

Dear Bob,

Thanks for your response. Joan Root indeed was quite a figure in the industry. Alan Root her ex partner will hopefully be giving us his version of their story. I'm looking forward to seeing the film about her.

Oxford Scientific Films was and still is a great company specialising is filming small creatures, but does well with larger subjects too (See The Elephant, The Emperor and The Butterfly Tree, 2003). Many of its founder members still work in the industry.

Best wishes

Derek
