They were epic movies in their time and great yarns from the War that captured all our imaginations. The author of these stories (and his life), were interesting tales to tell too - the life of Paul Brickhill, captured by Stephen Dando-Collins was colorful and fascinating - and you have a chance to hear about it. Interesting tidbits like his friendship with Peter Finch - one of our most celebrated actors from the past, and who made it big time in Hollywood.
The renowned author of 30+ books, Stephen Dando-Collins, (a larger than life figure himself), speaking on this biography so worth telling, and richly captivating alluring memories of our past. Don't miss it!

After a media campaign by conservationists to "FREE KATO" gets media attention, the Institute is forced to return Kato to the African jungle.
There was speculation by his trainer that he may not survive such a transition. Introduced to a colony of wild chimpanzees in Tanzania, KATO uses skills learned from his human handlers to survive. A captivating tale unfolds and the suspense surrounding his survival is palpable.
