The Bee Hunters.

Has anyone just seen the Bee Hunters on BBC 2 ? It was Jimmy Doherty of Jimmys Farm fame in Nepal. He was up 100ft cliffs on a rope ladder assisting in the honey harvest of the giant wild bees. oh.gif  I tell you what, I've always thought of him as a bit of a plonker but I tell you what ! He's one hell of a brave son of a bitch. oh.gif
If you didn't see it tonight, try and make sure you see the repeat. Its well worth it.

It was fascinating, but not good if you have vertigo.

Or keep thinking of Winnie the Pooh.

Don't hear much about the farm and he's only up the road, as the crow flies.

I started watching it but couldn't stand it anymore, so I missed that bit  icon_rolleyes.gif .  I saw their faces when they tested his honey though  

I watched it too, very good. I'm not normally keen on his stuff but last nights docu was very good. I couldn't believe it when they dropped that hive on the guys head. All I could think about was "He'll have some job getting that out of his clothes!" Very brave to go that height for some honey.
