Director & DoP - Jill Ranford
Produced by 4:2:2 Bristol for Marie Curie Cancer Care
Actors play the patient and her husband, but the
nurse was for real – Marie Curie’s Nurse of the Year.
Her real-life bedroom turned out to be very suitable
as well so we filmed there - repainting afterwards!
Produced, Directed & Filmed by Jill Ranford
for ITV West
This was a one-off 30 min. documentary about the choreo-
grapher, dancer & writer Wendy Buonaventura.
Her life revolves around Middle Eastern Dance which she
takes to another dimension. The programme is a
profile of Wendy herself and the atmospheric dances that
she creates & then performs with four other women.
Together they also explore Trance Dancing which is
exhilarating to watch but challenging to perform.
Filmed & co-Directed by Jill Ranford
Produced by Element Productions for ITV Wales
Two 6 part series about the birdlife of Wales, following
ornithologist Dee Doody on his expeditions into the
wilds to film them and explain how their lives fit into
the habitats they occupy. The series took us into
every nook and cranny of the Welsh landscape,
particularly memorable was filming the arrival,
at night, of Manx Shearwaters on the island of
Skokholm. We also filmed the first series.
Produced, Directed & Filmed by Jill Ranford & Nick Turner
These people are the original inhabitants of Taiwan,
living here long before the Han Chinese arrived but

wealthiest nations. Often discriminated against
this film looks at their plight.
Produced, Directed & Filmed by Nick Turner & Jill Ranford
On one of our many trips through Asia we came across this
story in Karachi, Pakistan. Orangi is one of the most
deprived districts of Karachi, home to refugees who fled
when Bangladesh came into existence. This film tells how
the people are helping themselves to improve their living
conditions.
Produced, Directed & Filmed by Nick Turner & Jill Ranford
The Karen people live in the uplands along the border
between Burma & Thailand, this film looks at the project
to create a seed bank of the indigenous crop species
they grow, especially drought resistant rice varieties.
Produced, Directed & Filmed by Jill Ranford & Nick Turner
A 52min. film for Worldwide distribution.

This is the first film we produced. We gained access
to Thiksey Gompa, one of the biggest Tibetan Buddhist
Monasteries in Ladakh, India and spent 8 weeks in the
depths of the Himalayan winter filming the everyday
life of the monks and the villagers. It was an extra-
ordinary opportunity and the resulting 52 film was
Highly Commended at the 1994 Montagne Film
Festival and went on to sell to 10 broadcasters
around the World including SBS Australia and
ARD in Germany.
