BBC Film “Queen of the Savannah”

As mentioned in a recent blog post ,  the film “The Queen of the Savannah” showing footage of our beehive fences at night was shown recently on BBC2. 

Here are a couple of photos of Julie Moniere (the camera woman) filming at the time

Also here are some stills from the program where the Kileva Foundation and our Mwakoma villagers were mentioned in the credits. 

This is all good publicity for Lucy King of the Save The Elephants organisation and let’s hope it brings more funding for her and her team to continue the great work they’re doing to protect crops and provide a sustainable additional income to the farmers of Mwakoma and surrounding villages.



PS: For more information about Lucy’s work click on the image below.

Hot off the press!

I just heard from Julie Moniere of the BBC that the documentary including filming of our Kileva behive fences (see the series of blog posts starting here which give the story of the BBC visit early last year) is on BBC2 tonight (Thu 29th) at 8.00 pm.  Here are the details:

I’m in the US on business this week so I’m hoping Jane records it ok for me. No pressure Jane … 🙂
