Hi Brent and others,

Don't believe anything you hear on TV. For example who else has been suffering through the ridiculous noises edited onto the beautiful Blue Planet footage? Anyone who has ever swum underwater knows that its pretty quiet under there (apart from the incessant hum of some fisherman trying to run you over in his boat) and those stupid noises added to the coral spawning last week were just dumb. In fact when they later played the call of the male Sperm Whale, I wasn't sure if the echo I could hear was what they actually sound like, or what they sound like if they are singing in St Paul's Cathedral!

I blame the unions. I reckon that after the show was made the Foley Artist's Union said "this film is way to quiet, no explosions or car chases... we'll have to edit some noise on before you can release it, otherwise all of us stupid noisy, ill informed and intrusive foley artists will be out of a job!

Thanks for the rave (one that has been building up for a while now), I feel better now.
