FACE TO FACE WITH A LEGEND

Thanks to the help of Belgium Vet Thierry Jauniaux and Dutch scientist Dr Mardik Leopold, we have been informed of the stranding of an humpback whale on Texel Island, north of Amsterdam, in the netherlands. As we were preparing to film the animal, a kitesurfer warned us that large male sperm whale just stranded only a few hundred yards from the first one. The occasion for our main character, Hannes Adams ( acting as the "young" Fred Buyle) to make an extraordinary encounter... a huge thanks to the anonymous kitesurfer, the Texel town council, photographer Rene Pop (in pict with Sperm Whale) for his picts, and, of course, Thierry and Mardik for their support.
