Tony Robinson (Baldrick) Filming with Call of the Wild

This is Tony Robinson filming his "Worst Jobs in History " programme. This was for the Dark Ages where Tony took on the part of a Saxon trying to harvet sea bird eggs from sea cliffs. This was extremely difficult for Tony as he is afraid of heights and he's certainly at height when filming this. Call of the Wild provided the staff and technical expertise to ensure there were no mishaps during the filming. It was filmed on the Gower, nr Swansea in South Wales.

Dave & Ortis Filming gadget show for Channel Five January 2010 On 5th January 2010 Dave Thomas from Call of the Wild was invited by Mykel Hawke (Mykel Hawke is a world-known survival expert, best-selling author, television and film personality and advisor) to attend a filming event as part of his team to hunt down 4 personalities from the Channel 5 TV programme "The Gadget Show". the presenters were  Ortis Deley, Jon Bently, Suzy Perry, and Jason Bradbury in the wilds of Bassett’s Pole near Sutton Coldfield.

A series of gadgets were deployed by both hunters and the hunted to assist in their quest to either capture or to escape (in the case of the Gadget show team). Teams deployed in the early hours in cool but clear conditions and continued their quest in increasing snowfall and sub zero temperatures. Dave’s main adversary was TV personality Ortis Deley who deployed dastardly tactics (and gadgets) in his attempts to shake Dave off his trail. 

 

Did he get away..............................?

You will need to tune in to The Gadget Show on Monday 22nd Feb at 8pm to find out!


"The Hangover" A Film About a Stag Party Tops US Chart

Comedy The Hangover has gone to the top of the US box office chart taking over £27 Million and narrowly beating Disney animation Up.The film is directed by Todd Phillips- who made Old School and Starsky and Hutch- and has proved a massive hit with critics and the public.

Skipping forward to the next morning, the three groomsmen awake with no memory of the previous night. They find Doug missing, Stu missing a tooth, a tiger in the bathroom, and a baby in the closet. Initially they believe Doug to have gone out for breakfast, but soon worry when his cellphone has been left behind. They collect what memories they have to figure what happened to Doug. The valet brings them a police car, which they had dropped off the night before.
 
It features a cameo from Mike Tyson, a tiger, a baby and Heather Graham in a bikini. What’s not to love?
