Welcome to Bees Business

Some of the interviews or articles that I have been involved in.

Bee Aware Symposium

This is an edited video of the Bee Aware Symposium in Windows Media Player format and MP4 format for Mac computers. The WMV version is a very large file (1.4Gb), while the MP4 is smaller (but still large) at just under 500Mb. The files are held in Dropbox which will allow a short clip from it to be played within Dropbox. To see the whole video it must be downloaded using the options available on the screen that opens when the link below is clicked.

Other Video Forums

Last April, I was invited to take part in a discussion about bees, honey and their importance in our society and culture. The discussion was held at The Baitul Huda Mosque, in Sydney and filmed by members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

The film has been made available to me to help promote Pollinator Week. This is not the final version and it is hoped that the next version (which is still awaiting approval from the UK head office) will include some of the beautiful images Laurence Sanders and Bees Business have shared with the film makers.

But in the meantime, this is the link to the film. We speak about the importance of bees in our cultures and our futures. I hope you find it educational and I thank the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community for giving me the opportunity to share my passion with them and with you.

The download is about 115MB.
