Sudden and Tragic Death of Richard Foster

Sudden and Tragic Death of Richard Foster

10th August 2018

It is with enormous shock and sadness that we have to report the tragic murder Richard Foster, following a botched break in at his home in Belize last week.  His wife Carol was in the USA at the time and is now back in Belize.

Our hearts go out to Carol at this terrible time - many colleagues from both Partridge Films days and at the BBC ( Richard was a respected and admired cameraman) will remember Richard as a gentle man ( and a gentleman) who became well known as 'our man in Belize' - I remember wonderful tales of his and Carol's endeavours filming jaguars and anacondas.

 Knowing they had many friends and colleagues in the BBC unit and from Partridge Films, Richard's family here in the UK are organising a Memorial Service in Oare near Faversham for Friday 26th October (tbc). Please check NHN for further details.
 

 

Richard, with his wife Carol, had been making award-winning wildlife and conservation documentaries for over 30 years from their base in Belize.  With access to still-pristine tropical rainforest and their close ties to local research stations and scientists, they produced work for many broadcasters including NatGeo and BBC (including of the Planet Earth and Life series).
