Voiceover: Imperial War Museum

I have just done the voiceover for another DVD for The Imperial War Museum..which reminded me to have a look at the previous one..both directed by Tod Nicol This documentary is all about RAF Duxford (and funnily enough that was where my parents got married in 1959).

TV Presenter: Headshrinkers of the Amazon

Headshrinkers of the Amazon is out on National Geographic Channel worldwide. Directed by Osca Humphreys and presented Piers Gibbon, it is all about the Shuar people of Ecuador. The story is kickstarted by the discovery of some footage shot by an explorer in the 1960’s – which looks like it shows the only known footage of a genuine headshrinking ceremony, with a real human head being shrunk to the size of an orange. On the way to find out what is really going on in the footage Piers meet the President of the Shuar, a battalion of jungle fighting specialists, a Catholic missionary who campaigns against headshrinking by converting the Shuar to Christianity, oh and a member of a lynch mob who is happy to talk about the day they dragged someone off into the jungle and “turned him into powder”… Thanks to everyone at Diverse TV and of course the Shuar for all their hospitality.

UK ISDN Voiceover: Anti Drink Drive radio adverts…

Piers did the voiceover for these excellent anti-drink/drive radio ads. Many thanks to the team at thisisglobal.com – Ben Davis, Fiona Taylor and Tracey Weiss. Piers did the recording via ISDN from his old studio in London Bridge so he didn’t get to see the clients from the Casualty Reduction Partnership but they sounded charming… There are three ads to listen to MUMS, YOUNGSTERS and OFFICE BOYS. Fingers crossed these make a difference. For voiceover/narration in the UK please contact Vocalpoint. Phone +44 (0)207 4190700 Email my voiceover agent

UK Voiceover: narration on Nile documentary

150 years ago, Africa south of the Sahara desert remained an unexplored wilderness. It also held a secret that obsessed Victorian geographers: the source of the White Nile river – the greatest geographical prize since the ‘discovery’ of America. In 1856, two Englishmen set out for the centre of Africa -the celebrated explorer, scholar and linguist Richard Francis Burton and an Indian Army officer, John Hanning Speke. The present-day explorer and writer Michael Asher follows in the footsteps of these two men. For Asher, one central mystery lies at the heart of Burton’s turbulent life: why, after this groundbreaking expedition to Africa, which should have guaranteed his place in history, did Burton become an outcast, finally buried in an extraordinary tomb in an obscure west London cemetery? Asher has searched for clues to explain how, in the space of two years, Burton and Speke, once close friends, became mortal enemies. Why was it that Speke claimed that he, not Burton, was the discoverer of the true source of the White Nile? And why, on the day before Speke’s claim was to be publicly evaluated, did he meet a violent and mysterious end?
