A few months ago Gregory Norminton, author of the excellent GHOST PORTRAIT, was kind enough to give me a highly entertaining interview. Last summer Gregory was one of a seven-member international team of enthusiastic amateur environmentalists filmed for a series called PLANET ACTION. This is an 'eco-reality series' which looks at the crises endangering the world's wildlife and is due to be screened on the Discovery Channel starting next Tuesday.
