This Wild Life

A 12 part BBC2 series following wildlife expert Saba Douglas-Hamilton, together with her husband Frank and their three young children as they move to the romantic Samburu National Reserve in Kenya to run a safari camp for the first time.

Born in Kenya with lions, giraffes and warthogs in her back garden, and speaking Swahili as her first language, Saba became entranced with wildlife at an early age. Her childhood was spent bumping around in the back of an open truck between Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda while her parents studied elephant behaviour and then battled to save them from the illegal ivory trade.” She met husband Frank Pope at a wedding in the UK and they eventually married and have three young daughters. “After a couple of years with both of them flying round the world to be with each other, Frank finally took the plunge and moved to Kenya where he now works as the chief operations officer for Save The Elephants.”

Sonny Rollins – BBC

A clip from ‘Sonny Rollins: Beyond The Notes’, which Gideon Gold edited for BBC Arena.

Sonny Rollins is the only remaining jazz legend who played with Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis and John Coltrane in the Golden Age of Jazz. Nominated for a Grierson Award in the UK, Beyond the Notes celebrates this master who still plays to sold-out concerts worldwide. Rollins has received a myriad of awards for excellence around the world, culminating in the Kennedy Centre Performing Arts Award he received from President Obama in 2011. Built around Rollins‘ self-produced 80th birthday concert, this film documents the Saxophone Colossus’ career in terms of the artistic quest for perfection.

Fontaine allows the music to breathe as he guides us through Rollins‘ meditation on the parallel journeys of his music and his life.

With: Ornette Coleman, Roy Haynes, Jim Hall, Roy Hargrove, Christian McBride, Courtney Pine, JD Allen, Sammy Figueroa, Bobab Cranshaw, Soweto Kinch, and Stanley Crouch.
