Doug's Book Chapter Five

Coming Up for Air was an early draft to get a feel for a cover and a shape for the book. But it was never taken really seriously ………

How about this for a possible title?


Doug's Book Chapter Four

Opening Ideas

So in April I felt I was committed. I had only a dozen captions written – the ones I’d done a few years earlier for Shirley, and of those maybe half were straight away dubious because in the cold light of the new idea for the book, they just didn’t seem to fit in well. The pictures might be the initial drivers for the book, but the stories were going to be important. I had a deep pool of stories and pictures to draw on, the decision was which pics and stories to use.


Doug's Book Chapter Three

A Cast of Thousands


Doug's Book Chapter 2

It’s the opening months of 2008, Alastair Fothergill had just been talking to me about his new big idea. Planet Earth had been a monster, viewing figures off the graph. My main effort for that had been the shoot in Kong Karl’s Land, going for the bear and cubs coming out of the den. The Diary piece that Jason and I made while on that trip, with the polar bear up at the window, had gone down a storm. It put me back in the public eye, lifted my profile another notch.


Doug's Book Chapter 1

For the last seven months, as well as filming, I’ve been writing a book. Well I say ‘seven months’, but actually it’s been brewing in my head for a lot longer than that. In these coming weeks until we come off the presses in early February 2012, I’m going to tell you it’s been the biggest fun I’ve had in a long time, why it’s felt real good to have finally done it, and therefore why you should all rush out and buy a copy please! But more of that later, if I take you back to the beginning you’ll get more of a feel for how it’s come about.


Bottle nose Dolphins

My last entry is dated June 2010. Good grief. Not so much a case of Where is Doug but Where the hell has Doug Been for the last fifteen months?

It’s not much of an excuse, but it’s been an odd period, big chunks of work when I’ve been away, with other chunks of solid in Bristol stuff. When I have been far from idol, but exploring other avenues.
