  • Stan Ray

    Is the “Birds of the Gods” program available and for sale to the public? If so please advise as to the specifics for ordering.
    What a spectacular program. I just viewed it on KYVE via my satellite provider.

  • Mary D Cohen

    The film shown last night, Sunday, January 23, is superb. We are planning an exhibit on Papua New Guinea and would appreciate knowing if the video can be made available for a public museum, its cost, and any information you can give me regarding acquisition of the video and conditions.

  • Bird Lover

    One of the biologists in the film passed away. (At the closing credits, his photo, dates of birth and death were shown). . . can you tell us more about him. Thank you.

  • phyllis

    My comment is the same as, Bird Lover. Please let me know what happened to Paul. Thank you.

  • Jon Cornforth

    I would also like to know what happened to Paul. Hopefully, there are other biologists willing and able to take his place.

  • Jewel

    For all of those asking, Paul Igag died on October 29, 2010 from a heart attack. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

  • Susan

    I love the music at the end when the birds were reviewed for a few seconds apiece. Can you tell me who wrote it and if it is available on a CD or on Itunes? Thanx, Loved the program!!
