Grey Ghost > Aired 14 Dec 2005
Grey Ghost produced by Alan Coukell. A sensual audio portrait of New Zealander Rhys Buckingham's 24 year search for a rare, mysterious bird. Pictured here is the North Island Kokako, which differs from its long-lost South Island cousin mainly in the color of its "fleshy wattles" (blue instead of orange). A story about belief and the beauty of straining to hear. This documentary is one of our favorites from the Third Coast International Audio Festival where it won an award in 2002.
