A New Documentary by Allison Bohl
A CONVERSATION WITH GEORGE T. McWHORTER
|It is rare in life that I cross paths with someone and immediately
feel they should have documentary made about them.
While making our Tarzan documentary I met a amazing man George T. McWhorter who is an Edgar Rice Burroughs rare book collector and archivist.
I wanted right away to make a film about him, a year and some months later here it is...

The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to 100 Years of Tarzan
by Sean Egan
In October 1912, readers of The All-Story magazine were enthralled by Edgar Rice Burroughs' tale of John Clayton, an orphaned English lord given a simian upbringing in the African jungle who went on to reclaim his birth-right in civilisation while maintaining one foot in the savage land he had conquered. The character went on to appear in more than two dozen sequels by Burroughs as well as many adaptations.
This book traces Tarzan's history in prose, film, comic strips, comic
books, radio, stage, television, computer games and merchandise, charting
the rise of one of the most popular and iconic characters in fiction. Included
is the last ever interview with Danton Burroughs (grandson of Edgar Rice
Burroughs), plus exclusive comments from Michael Moorcock, Hugh Hudson,
R A Salvatore and the oldest surviving screen Tarzan, Denny Miller, amongst
many more. The book also examines the massive changes in public attitudes
towards Africa, race, hereditary peers and wildlife conservation that may
finally deal Tarzan the fatal blow that any number of sinister safaris
and high priests of mysterious lost cities failed to. A comprehensive exploration
of one of the most famous icons of the last hundred years.

Rarest Gorilla Revealed in Camera Trap VideoAn extraordinary new video reveals the first camera trap footage of the Cross River gorilla, the world's rarest gorilla. The video, shot by Wildlife Conservation Society conservationists in Cameroon's Kagwene Gorilla Sanctuary, presents a vivid microcosm of these primates' lives -- their suffering at the hands of humans, their struggle, but also their pride.
Discovery ~ May 8, 2012
As the footage begins, you can see one gorilla stopping briefly to rest under a tree, but then it's compelled to move forward by the troop. When another spots the camera trap, it briefly charges, Tarzan style, toward the screen, beating its chest. Watching the footage, the connection to these magnificent animals, which are in turn so connected to us on the primate family tree, is undeniable. You can see how one gorilla has lost its hand, likely in a snare set by poachers, but the individual keeps moving and trying to survive. One can only wonder how hard that gorilla's life is now.
Fewer than 250 Cross River gorillas remain in the world. This video footage may be one of the last reminders of their existence. They are rarely observed by field researchers, so who knows when such footage will ever be captured again. The good news is that there is now increased patrolling in the region, hopefully preventing the placement of snares and other human-related problems.

Duke Paoa Kahinu Mokoe Hulikohola Kahanamoku
(August 24, 1890 – January 22, 1968),
"The Big Kahuna", is generally regarded as
the inventor of the modern sport of surfing.
He was also an Olympic champion in swimming.
|From ERBzine 0643
This 37-cent US stamp honours Hawaiian swimmer, surfer and Olympic Games gold medalist Duke Kahanamoku, who was renowned not only for his athletic prowess but also for his grace, humility and good sportsmanship. He is widely considered to be the father of international surfing, and for much of his life he served as a living symbol of hospitality and goodwill to the rest of the world. The portrait on the stamp, an oil painting by Michael J. Deas, is based on a 1918 photograph from the collection of the Bishop Museum in Honolulu. Visible in the background are depictions of Diamond Head and two surfers riding a wave at Waikiki Beach.
