I have had a few questions lately asking when the Safari TV diaries will be back. It's good to know that so many of you enjoy the diaries and I can tell you that they are something we haven't forgotten. Our plan is to return to producing at least one diary per week very soon and then ramp back up to one per day thereafter. The reason we suspended production of the daily diary was as simple as not having the editors available to produce a daily diary when a number of new clients came along who require post produced content and that work is keeping Herman's team busy. We'd love to increase our editing staff but as you know we are severely limited by the accommodation available at the moment in Djuma, but again we have a plan to improve that situation.
We were producing and distributing the diaries as a free service and hope to resume that free service very soon, but it does eat into the editing resources we have available on site (a three minute diary takes an editor 12 hours to produce) and our editors need to focus elsewhere for the moment.
From my prospective and knowing how much we needed to invest in terms of equipment and man hours it is good to know that the diaries were so well received, I'll pass the compliments to Herman and Seb and let then know how much you all enjoy them.
