I became aware of your project because my grandson, Captain Vincent Pellegri is the pilot of the KC 135 refueling the US spy-plane over the artic, and wanted to donate.

This is a fantastic project and a really timely contribution to a major international geo-political issue that touches on acute aspects of climate change and resource exploitation. As such, the University of Plymouth's 'Sustainable Earth Institute is delighted to support the venture and look forward to seeing the finished film. And we especially look forward to Wildcat Films producing us a bespoke video highlighting our work under the Global Challenge theme.

Melting Ice - Cold War’ - an important film for our turbulent times that really ought to be finished. I filmed with Dave on 'Earth: Power of the Planet' and he’s top class, so it should be epic. Good luck!!
