I In the mid 1980's I threw in my secure Government job, brought the new generation Betacam Camcorder and headed off into the Australian outback. My documentary titled 'The Australian Kimberley' was the first ever video shown on the Discovery channel, displacing the traditional 16 mm shooting. In the intervening years I have filmed all over Australian and the distant corners of the globe..

The plan, to ship 7 vehicles Vladivostok in Russia, then drive across Siberia on through Mongolia and on to Moscow a distance of 20,000 kilometers.

"Australian Birds" is a video based bird identification guide for the iPhone and iPad and is now available thru the Apple iTune store. I features clips of over 110 birds. Seeing a photograph of a bird is one thing but observing its behaviour can be a great help in identifying them. Watch as the Mallee fowl tends its mound, or the whistling Kite calling from the treetop, to the way the Willie Wagtail flits around. Observing a Golden Whistler, Babbler or fantail you easily see how they were named. In addition to the video clip, the app presents details for each bird, including a map of the areas where it can be found. And with more than 100 birds listed a useful function is the ability to mark and recall favorites.Read more...
