Episode 2: Blair Drummond Safari Park, Africa

In which our hero, Rooster Cogburn, sees cheetahs, reminisces with his friend Jeremiah about music and bears, and then hugs a llama

Videos found here

Note: Quicktime version coming soon.
Note 2: Due to scheduling conflicts, this episode was released after the date mentioned for the competition deadline during filming. A new date has been inserted. Thanks to the wonders of CGI you should not notice this. However, if you do, there is nothing wrong with your eyes. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Episode 2: Pre production begins.

Yes folks, you'll be pleased to know that episode two of RC:OWE has officially begun pre-production. Over the coming week the team shall be flying out to some secret locations to film the second of my two features. Last week we filmed the first. I'm not allowed to tell you any more that that, or Murray will give me angry looks, so you'll just have to bear it. Heheh.

Anyway, as always, I shall be having a guest presenter. Again, I will be keeping this a mystery. Perhaps I shall be allowed to reveal more details closer to release date to help pique your interest. All I can say is that this man is a real animal expert, and we should expect to learn a lot from his presentation. Even I, an Official Wildlife Expert, will probably learn something.

Anyway, that's all I got for you just now. I'll let you know more when I come back.
Toodle pip,

Some Recent Additions

Hey wildlife fans,

Murray recently added a few pages to the website on my request. One of you out there mentioned really liking the theme tune, so I asked Murray to allow y'all to download that. And you can now do that here. You can download both the amazing opening theme, and the awesome closing theme. I imagine the opening theme, for which I sing, will be the one downloaded most.

He also added in the rules for the competitions, which can be found here.

And on a completely unrelated note, I notice that nobody comments on the blog... You do know you can do that? In fact, it's the best way to give Murray and me feedback, because that way we don't have to share an e-mail address.

Over and out,

Episode 1: Some thoughts

So, Episode 1 was released at 1am on Monday there, and I thought I'd tell you a little bit about it.

The first thing I need to do is apologise for the dreadful sound quality of the bits that Paul Ferguson filmed for us. We had some equipment problems, which we hope to have fixed next time, so that you'll be able to hear me without the wind obliterating my voice.

I also feel that some people may think the competition isn't real. It is, and while there are some terms and conditions still to be worked out, I urge you all to enter by e-mail with your answers as to how many skittles there were in the glass. I don't know yet what the prize is going to be, but I can tell you this. It is amazing! Because if it isn't, I will refuse to let them send it out to you.

The other thing I feel I must tell you is that due to other commitments Murray has for the remainder of this month, and the first half of June, the second episode won't be released until some point in June. I know this is a long time, so I will try and educate you on animals using this blog at least once a week in the meantime.

Prepare thyselves! Episode 1 is coming!

Howdy chums.

Just thought I'd fill you in on Episode 1. We just got back from Spain last week, and handed the tapes over to our Editor, Murray Barnes. He told me that he's finished editing down the African footage from earlier, starring Elephants! I've done my commentary for it, and that part of the show is ready to ship.

I won't be the only star in this episode of RC:OWE, as my good friend from university Omar Omalomahlomahrrh filmed a delightful report on Leopards for us. We're incredibly lucky people, and Murray tells me that this is also ready to ship.

All that needs doing now is the segment on our trip to Spain (unfortunately, we never saw any animals, but it was a beautiful warm country nonetheless!), some touching up on the interstitials (Murray taught me that big filmy type word. He's not always been my editor, but he edits my footage in a much better light than my previous one, who shall go unnamed) and the competition!

That's right wildlife fans, a competition with a Mystery Prize!!! Could it be a date with yours truly? A hedgehog? A free massage? Who knows? I don't, I'm as in the dark as you are, so I don't give anything away on the show! It's very exciting though, so make sure to tune in when Episode 1 airs!

See you soon wildlife fans,

Episode 0: Test Pilot

Episode 0
In which our hero, Rooster Cogburn, visits the Andes and sees some llamas
Video now located here
Note: This is not a full episode, more of a proof of concept made by myself and Rooster to show off his amazing knowledge, and to attract enthusiasm towards the project

Welcome to the new Rooster Blogburn

Hi, I'm Rooster Cogburn, Man-Turkey Hunter and Official Wildlife Expert. I've started this blog, along with my editor Murray Barnes, to help the world learn about both the Mythical Man-Turkey and any other animals I happen to see when filming my series. I will post reports on the animals I see, as well as updates on filming of "Rooster Cogburn: Official Wildlife Expert", the new exciting wildlife documentary series. For some reason, the BBC hasn't signed us up for prime time television yet, so my editor, Murray, will post fairly low quality copies of the episodes for your enjoyment. See you soon, Rooster
