Charith Pelpola - One Life Photos

After having had such an incredible experience filming in Mongolia earlier this year, I thought it might be a good idea to submit a few of my photos to this ONE LIFE photography competition.

Have a look through my little portfolio, and vote if you have the time!

SAVAGE SPORTS - the end!

For the final episode in the series we pull out all the stops - bringing you a sport that has never been filmed before, from one of the most remote corners of Indonesia.

The aim of Mbela is to draw blood - it is violent and sometimes brutal and if you are born into the community where it originates - you MUST play the game...

A big thank you to all our viewers, friends, and you wonderful people out there who helped put this project together and make it a reality.

Channel NewsAsia will be repeating SAVAGE SPORTS so if you missed out on any of the episodes, you can catch them again. If you have any comments, please do share them on the CNA forum.

After months of stops and starts and cutting through red tape and a maze of filming permits, Firewalker's inaugural TV production SAVAGE SPORTS, is off the ground.

Airing this Sunday in Singapore and across the region, producing the series really has been a trial by fire, but nevertheless a rewarding experience thus far.

Check out the show's opening titles for a flavour of what to expect in the series:

UNEXPECTED ACCESS: On the Poacher's Trail...

I don't normally self-advertise but for those of you who are able - Watch UNEXPECTED ACCESS tonight on Channel 5 at 10pm please!

A rare opportunity for me to highlight the problem of the illegal wildlife trade to a prime-time audience. Hope many will tune in; especially poignant in this Year of the Tiger... animal lovers beware - some disturbing images - but these things must be highlighted from time to time...

The story highlights the efforts of the 30-strong team of Forest Rangers from Thailand's Thap Lan National Park - over 22,000 square kilometres in size - and their continuing fight against an onslaught of illegal wildlife poachers...

Highlighted in the episode is a huge confiscated haul of adult tiger carcasses and leopards and sun bears from a recent operation in late 2009. Shocking to see the results of the wholesale butchery and slaughter thats going on even as we speak...
