The BBC comes for Namadgi

By johnboy - 12 October 2011 7

Territory And Municipal Services are proudly announcing that the BBC Natural History Film Unit is coming to Canberra to film in Namadgi National Park for a series called “How Life Works”.

“This ground-breaking natural history series will use the latest scientific discoveries to illustrate how, against the odds, Earth?s most crucial habitats – Jungles, Grasslands, Seasonal Forests, and Water Worlds, sustain themselves,” said Brett McNamara, Namadgi National Park Manager.

“The ecology based series will demonstrate the important inter-relationships between species and highlight how these interrelationships allow the ecosystem to function. Within Namadgi National Park they will be focussing on grasslands and the relationship between wild dogs and kangaroos.

“The film crew will have close access to their filming environment as they are staying at Ready Cut Cottage in Gudgenby Valley. Namadgi Rangers have been providing logistical support.

“Namadgi is one of only two sites being filmed in Australia, so we are privileged to host the internationally renowned BBC Natural History team in our local national park.

Yeah- I tell you- they’re nasty, nasty critters. If their razor teeth and scalpel-like claws don’t get you, their lack of hygiene will.

Dannybear, are you suggesting bunyip’s are… not real (shiver) or that they have really snappy fashion sense??

As if being attacked by a drop bear isn’t bad enough, but you are telling me that even if I survive I’ll catch the plague?

Well, drop bear plague did wipe out most of europe in the middle ages. Historians however have covered this up and blamed fleas and rats as they didn’t want to create a panic in the population if they found out that drop bears had managed to swim to england, and then continental europe.

Little known historical fact.

David Starkey, Simon Sharma, et al, hang your collective heads in shame.
