Don't Forget.....

Postby Bouncy Castle » Wed Mar 27, 2013 10:00 am

Terry's show about Librarians is on tonight.

Author Sir Terry Pratchett revisits Borneo to consider the fate of his beloved, endangered orangutans.

It's certainly on the BBC iPlayer - that's how I intend to watch it. :)

That's what I thought. It made Karen cry :cry: But still worth watching. Terry is an inspiration in how he explains & deals with his illness. And watching the programme made me think, who wouldn't want to do all they can to save these wonderful creatures.

Just watched it and really found it very moving - not just for Terry but for the fate of the world when Mankind is prepared to rip the very heart out of its world to make a fast buck. :(

I love orangs, especially the babies. They look like they stuck a finger in a light socket, all big eyes and hair stuck up on like a brush head. :D :lol:
