Bristol wildlife cameraman killed in Namibian plane crash
AN award-winning wildlife cameraman, who recently moved from his home in Bristol to start a new life in Cape Town, has been killed in a plane crash in Namibia.
BBC Natural History Unit (NHU) veteran Richard Matthews had more than 20 years of experience in production, camerawork and directing, and had won numerous awards including three Emmys.
The cameraman, who had recently worked on the BBC’s landmark Africa series, had enjoyed a career that had taken him to locations all over the world – but until recently he always thought of Bristol as his home – close to the NHU headquarters in Whiteladies Road.
BBC television presenter Simon King described him as a “hugely talented wildlife film maker”.
