My two very favourite subjects, animals & Julian ! :clap:
2009 is off to a good start on the Julian front.... if nothing else. :)

Video is already set!

Thankfully due to the fact my 3 year old boiler has died the cats and I are still at my parents. They have sky and my Dad loves nature programs so this could work well. :D

Although I do feel my Dad will be suspicious when I start suggesting we watch it :roll:

I think Julian is a modern day Johnny Morris. :lol: [for anyone old enough to remember Animal Magic]

His voices [& accents] were brilliant. I particularly enjoyed his German 'Damisi', the silverback gorilla....just the right amount of arrogance & petulance.
I fell totally in love with the Morris the obese dormouse though, who had to lose weight before he could be released into the wild. I understand completely how addictive nuts can be after this Christmas! :dh:

I don't know whose idea it was for this programme, or for Julian to do the voiceover & animal voices, but it's absolutely wonderful!

:WD: Julian, another triumph!

I loved it too - very silly, but very enjoyable all the same.... I used to love Animal Magic and it struck much the same tone.

I'll edit a little sample over the weekend for those of you that can't get Sky :D :D

Agree, it was fun. The other actors were good too (especially Sally Phillips as the disgruntled 'wife' of the creature with a flatulence problem!)....and I'm sure it was Julian doing the lion impression in the first programme! :lol:

I think it was Julian too... we should be able to have fun with that in the future I suspect. He also was doing the voices of the monkeys eating too much fruit in that first episode :lol:

Just checked my tape, & yes it was Julian doing the lion's voice. He said something about 'tasty little snacks'...think this was a reference to Morris the obese dormouse! :shock:
