Public Appearances > 2013 > October 18 – “Locke” Screening at the 57th BFI London Film Fest
Toms documentary about anti-poaching entitled ‘Poaching Wars with Tom Hardy’ will be aired on Aug 22 (ep 1) and Aug 29 (ep 2) at 9 pm on ITV1 in the UK!
Unlike ‘Caroline Quentin’s Dung Beetle Adventure’ and the like, this two-parter is more than a celebrity-fronted jolly to warmer climes and exotic fauna. To his credit, Hardy – even if he does get to mess around with some elephants – is here using his rapidly expanding profile to investigate the losing battle against rhino and elephant poaching in Africa.
He meets private anti-poaching militias, gamekeepers and journalists, who paint the same grim picture: well-meant but haphazardly directed efforts to counteract the ivory and rhino horn trades are largely locally funded and policed, even as their proceeds are used to bankroll global crime and even terrorism. Solutions are, perhaps unsurprisingly, thin on the ground, but Hardy asks sensible questions and gets honest answers, however unpalatable they may be.
I’m sorry for the wait for updates.
Until very recently, I was doing an internship and didn’t have time to update the site. So now I’m slowly catching up with updates on Tom’s career. I’ll start with a few (old) pics of Tom and Noomi Rapace at Gabrielle’s Gala back in May.
