Updates from Maritime Film UK’s Rob White, TV producer, reporter and camera operator with 30 years’ experience at the BBC, Channel 4 and ITN

Alfie knows what it’s about

04 September 2015

Well, no conservation company is complete without a guard dog (this is Alfie, of the Crick-Smith team) to keep an eye on what’s happening and make sure everything is above board, and all visitors behave properly. (Especially to make sure that no treats are going begging… miserable failure by the Maritime Films UK team there.) On behalf of Camera Assistant Steve Crouch and myself, Alfie, I can only offer the feeble excuse that we didn’t know you were part of the team. But Steve had his (very nice and smart ) trousers carefully checked out by the UK’s top canine conservator, because Steve lives in Neville the cocker spaniel’s house, and it’s only good form to show an interest, after all. We dogs do have manners, you know. Even if there aren’t any treats. Don’t forget next time, is all!!
