    • Synopsis
    • 50 years later, as the world faces the greatest extinction crisis since homo sapiens evolved, Roger has decided to track down the original ‘singers’ to see if they survived and whether their songs may hold the secret to our salvation. This theatrical documentary tells the story of how Roger made his momentous discoveries about whales in the late 60s and 70s. His pioneering work helped spark the entire, modern global environmental movement – from the Save the Whales campaign to the formation of Greenpeace. As with Jane Goodall or Diane Fossey, this is also a tale of a life lived at conservation’s wildest edge – from Roger’s years spent swimming eye-to-eye with whales in Bermuda, to the adventure of raising a young family on the wind-lashed coast of Patagonia.
