The Lost Tape
When we launched Idealog Martin Bell, one of my partners and the business director and I were interviewed on 'Breakfast'. I hadn't seen the clip before - two years on it makes me cringe a little, But, hey, it's part of the record (there's no escaping your history anymore -it is available 24/7 all around the world).
I was originally searching the TVNZ video archive for a segment on the prize winning Kiwi wildlife cinematographer who featured in a 20/20 or 60 Minutes segment. Couldn't find it. If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd be grateful. I'm writing a novel about a Maui dolphin and the marine biologist who will save them. The footage is part of my research. I wan't to hear how wildlife cameramen talk…From memory he had dreads then cut them off...? Help.
By the way the book is called 'Vanishing Act'. It's really about media agendas and the obsession we have with celebrity and glossing even the most unpleasant fact of life.
