Cromer pier show for Darwin

In all the many celebrations of Charles Darwin's 200th birthday and 150th year since first publication of his greatest work, my favourite by a long way is the Nature Network 'unconference' 'Cromer Is SO Bracing'. The meeting, organized by my friend and colleague Henry Gee, featured a geological field trip, a workshop on crocheting toy marine invertebrates, and the scripting and shooting of a short film called 'Cromer: Darwin's Lost Weekend' (as well as a superb lunch by Mrs Gee). Henry has blogged several posts from the meeting, starting with this one, and progressing in order: Friday lunchtime; pier review; Saturday afternoon; and Sunday. Delegate Erika Cule has blogged about it here (day one) and here (day two). The eagerly anticipated highlight, though, is the movie Darwin's Lost Weekend, directed by Graham Steel. I can now bring you exclusive news that, before the film itself, or indeed a trailer, is released, you can view "THE MAKING OF" – courtesy of FriendFeed as I do not have a clue if I can or, if so, how to embed a video into this blog. Having viewed the 'making of' video, I can't wait for the main event.
