hi Dahai :mrgreen: how ya doing?

glad to say that twinkle and Wayne are now in touch

1 Image 2 Image 290 views since 20 March 06

Wayne has quite a few cine films up his sleeve, no 2 shown above is the one I already referred to in my first post, it has been seen 290 times since last month WOW! :twisted: now THAT is pretty cool! 290 views is pretty amazing

okay Wayne just emailed me a new cine film - numbered 1 above

please note that the quality of the film unfortunately deteriorates upon receipt at "YouTube" - they are intent on 'compressing' the footage no matter what

HOWEVER ... strangely enough and I know this sounds a little crazy, after you have watched the film a couple of times on YouTube the deterioration seems to lessen somehow - you get 'accustomed' to it? anyway, give it a try :wink:

Lady Lion Cub (3 months) just loves to pounce on Sean (2 years old) and this is hilarious to see, the best bit is when Sean simply gets back up without a murmur or even better withstands Lady's pounce :P priceless!

Hi - I lost touch with Wayne several years ago and wonder if anyone has his email address please. We were great friends with him and his family hin the 70s and kept in touch for many years after they left Windsor, but I lost his address in New Zealand. Would be really grateful for any help.

10MB submitted by Wayne Reid: film was taken in WSFP Sept 1977

Wayne lived at that time with his young family in the bottom floor of the two-storey house adjacent to the dolphinarium

Lady - the lion cub - was around two months old. She was the third cub Wayne hand reared. The courtyard filmed was outside their front door. They lived with the sounds of Ramu breathing, the dolphins calling and playing, the chimps arguing and other X-rated stuff.

Sean their son was 6mths old when they arrived in UK. His first recognisable word was Concorde. They were test flying at that time. This involved opening the engines to the point that everything in the house rattled when it went overhead.
Sean treated the lions as any kid treats a pet. Even though the cubs had the tendancy to be a little rough at times, he gave as good as he got!
I tried to upload Wayne's video to YouTube can anybody say if it plays better from there? :?:
