We will keep you posted if anything changes but hold thumbs for a glitch-free day! Just one note, the second dive may possibly be delayed by [...]

diveLIVE Diaries: It’s all about the people

Imagine turning up to your second day of work and your boss tells you to do an unprepared presentation to 1.8 million people. Sounds pretty ridiculous right? Well, welcome to day 2 of the diveLIVE adventure. Thinking back to my first day, meeting new colleagues who were soon to become my Caymanian family, it’s [...]

The Cat Report: 4 – 11 May

This week started rather slowly as the big cats kept themselves hidden, leaving us chasing shadows and following tracks in endless circles… It was almost as if they were taking joy out of watching us follow the signs indicating that there were lions and leopards moving all around Djuma. Patience was the lesson because [...]

diveLIVE Update: 11 May

Hello again, A quick update with some good news. The new Equipment Housing has arrived and we are pressure testing it at depth today before putting the broadcast equipment in. This housing also has a pressure gauge and can be pulled vacuum which means we can test whether it is properly sealed with no [...]

diveLIVE Diary: Week 1 to present

It may be only week 3 in Grand Cayman, but I already feel like a different person from the dude that jumped off the plane only 16 days ago. Not only have I experienced physical changes (darker skin, lighter hair and loss of the beer belly), I also feel a great sense of positive [...]

An Afternoon with the Cheetah, Naretoi, and Her Cubs

The long rains continue to sweep through the Mara leaving the Triangle a waterlogged paradise. The roadways have transformed into waterways, and they are a few litres short of turning our safaris into cruises. Well, that may be an exaggeration, but we do have to be particularly careful even in areas where offroading is [...]

diveLIVE: Beta update 9 May

Victory has been snatched from our dedicated Grand Cayman team as yet more technical gremlins endeavour to wield their mischief on our underwater gear. For those who got to watch last night’s dive, you would have experienced a rather abrupt end to it after Pat lost comms. Well, what was really happening behind the [...]

Maintaining an Icon

safariLIVE has been fortunate enough to showcase some of the most extraordinary wilderness areas on the planet, one of which is the Maasai Mara in Kenya. While WE have been filming spectacular scenes of cheetah chasing down antelope or hordes of wildebeest throwing themselves across the Mara River, the beauty and splendour has often [...]

Directing 101: My first experience in a broadcast control room

“Five, four, three, two, one… live, live!” - the words instantly release a tiny dose of adrenaline which runs through my body. No retakes, no fixing in post and editing; just this moment right here, captured on camera, sent straight to thousands of viewers. Still the only words in four years of filmmaking that [...]
