In April 2011 EPM Asia were contracted by Dangerous from London to be the local handling agent for a four day shoot on the Hong Kong leg of a longer production.

The wildlife documentary series was following British palaeontologist and writer Professor Richard Fortey as he searched out “survivors” - animals that have survived and live today in basically the same way they have for millions of years – a sort of living fossil.

Surprisingly Hong Kong is home to a number of such species, and EPM were there to assist in a jam packed schedule as the professor scoured mud flats near the border with Mainland China, dredged from a fishing boat in the South China Sea and even sampled the taste of his survivors in the local Cantonese cuisine.
