Hi John

There are over 100 ex Windsor Safari Park workers registered on friends
reunited which is at http://www.friendsreunited.co.uk/

When you go to the site look in the left hand column for "WORK"

Apart from that, I will put a message onto our forum about this to see if
any WSFP members know the answer to your query.

John, if you have any stills/ video clip from Windsor Safari Park - would be
GREAT if you could email me anything you have :-)

cheers and best of luck on your documentary ........ falkor

Subject: C4 documentary looking for help....

Hi there,

I'm currently finishing a documentary on the filming of The Omen for Channel 4.

As I'm sure you know, part of the film was shot in Windsor Safari Park in 1975. Shortly after the filming a member of staff ( Mr Syndey Bamford ) was killed by a tiger. We mention the two facts in the documentary ( it's one of a number of things that went wrong in the vicinity of the film ).

As a result, we're trying to get in touch with Mr Bamford's next of kin, to make them aware that the programme will be broadcast later this year. We don't want to interview them, or upset them, merely to make them aware that we mention the incident in the documentary.

I've been unable to track down any contact numbers and wondered if you would be able to point me in the right direction or suggest a way of getting in touch with his family ?

Thanks for your help

Cheers Falkor, thanks for getting back so quickly.

The documentary is broadcast at Halloween. The incident with the Tiger + the
Omen might make an interesting piece for your site.

Will check out Friends Reunited and see if I can trace Sydney.

If you have any luck could you cc replies to Ajeffrey@mentorn.tv as I am
about to move from the company so Arlene will be looking after things.

best wishes

John MacLaverty
