There has been such an incredible reaction to a film that has been a labour of love for producer/DOP Martin Dohrn. Wildscreen Festival organised a showing of the film in an outdoor square in Bristol after dark, it drew more than a thousand people with blankets and camp chairs. It went on to win two awards at Wildscreen, the Science award and the Technical Innovation award.

Other festival wins around the world include the Grand Helix Award at Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival, Science Media Awards 2016, the Golden Dolphin for Nature, Environment & Ecology and the Black Dolphin for Best Camera at Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards 2016, the Jury Award in Best Film Professional at the Wildlife Film Festival Rotterdam 2016, and the Grand Prize for Best Nature Documentary at INFF – Innsbruck Nature Film Festival 2016.

Attenborough’s Life That Glows

David Attenborough Pennsylvania

Attenborough’s Life That Glows was aired on BBC2 last week, great to see all of our hard work over the past year (and for Martin about 20 years!) come together. There has been some very kind words said from the press:

The shots of dolphins [..] were perhaps the most beautiful and mystifying sight ever shown on any Attenborough programme.

Daily Mail

Close the curtains, turn off the living-room lights and bask in the glow of this otherworldly one-off from the master.

Radio Times

It’s yet another Attenborough documentary that will leave you basking in its glow.

If you missed the show you can catch up on iPlayer until the 9th June.

The Queen’s Garden

The Queen’s Garden is being broadcast over the Christmas period on ITV1. During the summer I had the privilege of filming bats in Buckingham Palace gardens with OSF and Alan Titchmarsh. We saw a few pipistrelles catching insects over the water by the front lawn of the Palace and a rat wandering along the edge of the pond. The Palace advisor had suggested we shouldn’t show the rodent in the final cut as it may look bad on the gardens’ part, however I still spotted it near the end of the sequence!
