Book Description Hutchinson. London. 1976 1st edition. 8vo (140 x 221mm). Pp192. B/w photograph plates. Blue cloth, spine titled in gilt. Good-plus in chipped dust-wrapper. Well-known ornithologist, naturalist and BBC broadcaster, Eric Simms, "writes of a lifetime spent in the study of natural history and recounts his adventures in his search for wildlife, including his visits to wildlife sanctuaries in America, Europe and Africa. From Oxford he went into the RAF in 1941 and underwent training in Canada and the United States; he revealingly describes life in the US Army Air Force and gives an exciting and very personal account of the air war in Europe. After five post-war years as a schoolmaster he was appointed in 1950 to succeed Dr Ludwig Koch as the BBC's resident naturalist and director of its wildlife sound recording projects. With the introduction of tape-recording, parabolic deflectors, radio links and hydrophones he pioneered techniques which are now commonplace. .Eric Simms now has more than 3500 radio broadcasts and 500 television appearances to his credit. Birds of the Air covers his varied career and traces his development as an active and, on the whole, optimistic conservationist." Chapters include:- 'On a green light!'; Origins and beginnings; Oxford in wartime; Call-up; Flame vines and Spanish moss; From the deep south to the great lakes; The war comes closer; The air assault on Europe; Pedagogy; Stalking wildlife with a microphone; Nature on the air; Abroad for birds; Television; Film-making; Dollis Hill; African safari; Wildlife on the world service; Broadcasting House; Backwards and forwards.
