February at Malago WI saw us enjoy the delicious delights of Zara’s chocolates who very generously provided samples of her incredible chocolate and we learnt that chocolate is a lot more than your favourite bar.
For this month’s meeting we are delighted to be hosting Sara Douglas. Sara works in natural history film making. Sara spent 2 and a half years with the BBC Natural History Unit as assistant producer/researcher on several ground-breaking series including; the recent Big Blue Live – from Monterey Bay in California and Japan – Earths Enchanted Islands as well as favourites such as Springwatch. She is currently with Keo Films, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s company, working on a documentary Pushed to Extinction.
Sara will give an insight into how wildlife programmes are made from the initial research and filming to the final edits and screenings. We will get the chance to see extracts from various programmes she has worked on; including 'Big Blue Live' and we will be providing some cinema related treats. Sara will be delighted to answer any questions you have about her work or natural history film making.
We hope as the days are getting longer and the nights are not so chilly, that we will see many familiar and new faces at our March meeting. We appreciate for those of you who drive, parking can be tricky, but there is ample parking on West Street and at the free car park on Diamond Street.
We try to shape the meetings around our members and their interests. If you have any suggestions for future meetings, please let us know.
We look forward to seeing you at 8pm on Wednesday 30th
