SYNOPSIS: An enchanting book - it reminded me of early Gerald Durrell - and it gives us a rare insight into the unexpected problems, the surprising solutions, the frustrations and anxieties of a natural history cameraman.' Redmond O' Hanlon, author of Into the Heart of Borneo. James Gray has fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a natural history cameraman; over the years, he has filmed everything from human lice (which he had to feed on his own blood) to polar bears in the Arctic, anacondas in Venezuela, gorillas in Rwanda, caiman crocodiles in South America, elephants in Thailand, and pandas in China. In this highly entertaining and informative narrative, the author describes his (sometimes very scary) experiences filming wild animals - and introduces readers to some of the tricks of the trade. Keeping the television producers happy requires not only an inordinate amount of patience and perseverance, wading through swamps or squatting in trees for days on end - but may also require giving nature a helping hand. This delightfully funny and eye-opening book is the perfect gift for anyone who enjoys wildlife programmes. Quantity Available: 1.
