Chasing Shadows

At 2:45 in the morning, on June the 2nd, 2006, pirates stormed an oil rig off the coast of Nigeria. Eight workers were taken hostage. Four days later, all of them walked free… but one returned a changed man.

Seven years later that man re-emerged onto the world stage.

And he’d brought treasure with him.

Much of our television history is lost forever. A victim of fashion and economics, British television allowed some of the finest programs in the world to be destroyed. Gradually, systematically, the videotapes that contained this precious heritage were erased. But in 1967 the BBC began wiping a program that would ultimately attract an especial brand of fascination.

A science fiction series called Doctor Who.

This is the story of a man named Philip Morris and his hunt for missing treasure. A story about his return to Africa to face his demons and the years he spent searching for lost television. It’s a story of the world as it used to be and what it’s become. A story of successes and failures, of politics, rivalry and money. It’s about the priceless things that Philip Morris found on his search and the impact his discoveries had upon a subculture.

This is a story about chasing shadows… and what happens when you catch them.

COMING SOON – THE DEFINITIVE STORY OF THE SO-CALLED OMNIRUMOUR AND ITS IMPACT ON A FAN SUB-CULTURE!
