    25 years old now, shot with the PNG Police U-matic video team after my Hi-8 camera was stolen. We distributed hundreds of VHS copies across the schools, churches and market video-shacks of PNG to share these stories of what really happens when a logging company comes to your village with a great-looking deal. It raised a lot of interest, and the best compliment was when pirate tapes started appearing... VSO biology teacher Keith Harris conceived the project and brought me in as producer/director. Leonie Kanawi proved to be an implacable interviewer (stirred by forest loss on her home island of Manus). The fine camerawork and editing are courtesy of Ralai 'Roger' Ralai and Luke Gembol. Sound recordist Mandi Wandua actually was a serving policeman and had to be dissuaded from wearing his uniform on location - but we couldn't borrow the equipment without him and his gun. It's a long story ... but tragically the logging continues.
