INDIA: NATURE'S WONDERLAND, GUARDIAN REVIEW

2-9-2015

By Tim Dowding

"There were, along the way, some spectacular sights: a hidden valley alive with wildflowers, 3,000m above sea level; centuries-old footbridges woven out of the living roots of fig trees; a great pied hornbill flying over a coffee plantation.

“This is a land that seems to have it all,” said Bonnin. I’m not going to argue with that on a Tuesday night." Read Full Article

"This is the spectacular climax of the farming year, when fortunes are won or lost in the attempt to put food on our plates. Our farmers have spent all year carefully tending their crops helped by the very latest science, but they are still completely at the mercy of our fickle weather. Can they put a disastrous 2012, the coldest spring for 50 years and a scorching July behind them and work their magic to bring in a bumper crop?" Read full article.

 

 

ARTICLE IN THE IDEPENDANT FOR THE ROMAN FRONTIER GALLERY

"The new gallery will also show what life must have been like for the people who lived near the wall. ...............

The wall must have divided communities, like the Berlin Wall and the Israeli frontier. Sisters who lived a five minutes' walk apart must have been cut off from one another. Hundreds of people could no longer walk to their local market or even into the village."  INDEPENDANT ARTICLE Full Text

The star of the show is the new £1.2million Roman Frontier Gallery at Carlisle’s Tullie House museum, which opens on June 25...

Modern-day resonances vividly come to life in the Living Frontier part of the gallery, where a vast, slogan-covered concrete wall, and films of interviews with people from divided cities such as Belfast and Jerusalem, remind us that Hadrian’s Wall was a brutal construction.

 THAILAND TOUR RESEARCHED FOR THE ARCHAEOLOGY CHANEL

 02-2011

Watch the trailer

In February 2010, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) invited ALI to participate in their Golden Jubilee Media Educational Trip to Thailand. This trip, designed by the TAT to educate media organizations about the tourism attractions of Thailand, was an excellent opportunity for ALI to explore and interpret the cultural heritage of this great country for our audience. It also was a chance for us to demonstrate that we can tell a story about a country through film that is authentic and informative as well as in harmony with and supportive of the goals of tourism promotion.

We sent our correspondent film maker, Teal Greyhavens, on this tour, which took place March 12-25, 2010, and included a wide variety of destinations in Thailand. Before he left and while he was there, ALI volunteer researcher Leah Arnold-Redman, currently residing in the United Kingdom, carried out background research on the cultural heritage sites Teal would be visiting and prepared script text for his use in the field and upon his return home. He came back exhausted from the journey and the hard work involved, but excited to have the chance to create a news-style film report of his tour. We will broadcast this report as part of our new series, Video News from TAC.
