Overheard in the Office

From across the office I hear a telephone conversation

Producer: I need to find a country that has endangered species

Producer: Okay, but I want a more exotic one. Somewhere in Africa perhaps?

Producer: No but those animals could also be found in the UK

Producer: Okay that's getting better but we need it to be a really exotic creature in a country that will make people go "wow that's extreme"

Producer: Well have a think and make me up a list of all of the endangered species around Africa/South America/The Far East and I'll make a decision.

I've got an idea love, how about you find a creature you think works in a country that is perfect and then kill off the majority of them. That might be the easier route.

Now that's a nice plan, and you can get two documentaries for the price of one. First one on illegal poaching and hunting of endangered creatures, second one on their preservation.

Sounds like he is after sensationalism rather then focusing o the plight of the endangered animal.
The whole friggin planet is endangered... is that sensational enough for you?

Chitty - It's a woman :P But in answer to your point, all of TV is about sensationalism! What, do you really think we're trying to help the world?

I am shocked. I thought sensationalism is what the news is for... hehehe. Well, that and the ongoing soap opera that is Britney Spears.
Send her to Africa and let her do a piece on the Riverine rabbit in the Karoo. Hot enough for ya?
