For your information the following was in today's Telegraph:


FOSTER Richard Leigh, wildlife film maker and campaigner for the natural world, died tragically in Belize 7 August 2018. Much loved husband, father, grandfather and brother. The world is a better place for his life. Family and friends’ farewell in Belize has taken place. Memorial service in Kent, England 2 November 230pm. Details: simon8foster@gmail.com.

Richard was a visual person, full of sight and sound. This is not easy to achieve in our little church of St Rumwolds on Romney Marsh near Symnells. The service will be in two parts, at 230 in the church with candles and hand-made music. Then in the Aldington village hall at 330 where we have sight and sound for visual tributes to Richard's unusual life, accompanied by tea and bubbles.

We would love to see you if you can make it. The easiest way from London is by twice hourly high speed train from St Pancras to Ashford International. (35 mins).The family may be able to help with transport from the station.

 

Anyone wishing to come please email Richard's brother, Simon Foster on simon8foster@gmail.com

A few words by Producer Andrea Florence.

Richard Foster was a hugely talented wildlife filmmaker, a fantastic person, a true English gentleman and a passionate conservationist.

Way back in the 80’s I had the privilege of spending a year at Richard’s film base in the heart of Belize in Central America. Heading out there to his address - mile 28 and a half - sounds like something from a Harry Potter novel. And it was true magic – a place of mountains, caves, rainforests and the second largest barrier reef in the world, all right on his doorstep. No wonder Richard decided to settle there. 

 

In his series ‘Path of the Rain God’ his unique camerawork shone out as he captured sequences and behaviours that had never been filmed before – tiny flower mites hitchhiking in the bills of humming birds to travel from one flower to another; remarkable high speed footage of fishing bats at night capturing unwary fish by trawling their long claw

Sudden and Tragic Death of Richard Foster

10 August 2018

It is with enormous shock and sadness that we have to report the tragic murder of 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 anaco
