Dear Friends,

As you may be aware, I have been assisting a non-profit conservation effort
to help the protection of the Tepuis - the spectacular "lost worlds" of
Venezuela that are home to Heliamphora, and other incredible wildlife, much
of which is found no where else on Earth.

Part of the project was to produce a non-profit conservation documentary to
raise awareness of the incredible diversity of life found atop of Mount
Roraima, and to highlight the conservation concerns that afflict this
spectacular lost worlds.

It is my pleasure to invite you to the world premier of the film in London
at the Royal Geographical Society on September 13th, 2011.

The event will be hosted by Michael Palin (presenter for many travel
documentaries and lead in Monty Python) who is the president of the Royal
Geographical Society.

Sir David Attenborough has also agreed to attend, if his filming commitments
allow. He will be joined by some well known television presenters and
personalities who will be amongst the first to view some world exclusive
footage of when Jimmy Angel discovered the legendary Angel Falls, amongst
incredible material of rare carnivorous plants, spectacular animals and the
strangest landscapes on the planet.

The project, and the premier are both non-profit making. However, the
conservation group behind the project does have to hire the RGS venue, and
to cover costs, it is asking just £15.00 per ticket per person – available
at http://lostworld.eventbrite.com . V.I.P. tickets, which include a drinks
and canapés reception and the opportunity to meet our specially invited
guests are priced at £50.00 and can be ordered by calling 0207 609 6775 and
quoting 'Lost World'.

I really hope to see you at the premier. It will be a night to remember!

Kind regards to you all,

Stewart McPherson
