    I've been waiting months to see this show after reading about it on the American Orchid Society homepage. It aired tonight 11/26 on the show NOVA on public television in the USA but in the UK over a year ago. It shows them out traveling the jungles and the story of a guy who wants to name a plant after his grandmother.
    It was a pretty good show, I just wish they would come out with Nep Hunter! Perhaps Borneo & Fatboy could make a documentary I know I'd definately buy a tape of it!

    I found out about the show a few days ago and watched it yesterday with excitement [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Boy, that dude is irritating, I was happy to find out he failed in discovering a new species. Nep Hunter would be so much more interesting (to us anyways).

    I agree with Larry, he was rather irritating. I was especially annoyed when he cut down the ceologyne (probably spelled wrong) orchid, knowing it was a common species. I don't see what use they could have had for cutting the entire plant down.
