George Clooney In New Angling Show For Channel 4

Hollywood superstar George Clooney features in a new angling show being aired on Channel 4 this weekend.

Fishing For Trouble follows the adventures of Time Magazine’s Africa correspondent Alex Perry as he tries to fit in some fishing in a war zone.
Alex has reported on more than 20 conflicts across Asia, the Middle East and Africa, including Iraq and Afghanistan.
This time he’s in troubled South Sudan, and for his downtime he decides to try and catch a Nile perch.
While travelling through the region, accompanied by an armed guard, Alex bumps into George Clooney, a fervent supporter of South Sudan, on the banks of the Nile.
This is more than just a fishing adventure, as Perry, through his passion for fishing, tells the story of the world’s newest nation.
The programme will be broadcast on Channel 4 at 12.30am on Sunday morning and the programme makers – Bigballs Films – hope a full series will be commissioned.

Fishing For Trouble Q&A

How did it come about?
Alex Perry, Time magazine’s war correspondent, came to Bigballs Films with the idea of Fishing for Trouble a couple of years ago, to combine fishing in war zones with telling the story of that country, and together they developed the pilot that is broadcasting on December 2nd.

Is it a one off?
It was commissioned as a pilot episode, and Channel 4 will make a decision in the coming weeks about whether to make a series.

Where do they fish?
The bulk of the episode takes place on the Nile in an area of South Sudan called The Sudd, which is one of the world's last great wildernesses.

What challenges did they face?
Heat, crocodiles, hippos, all the usual challenges of fishing in Africa.

What did they catch?
Not a lot! A very small Nile perch was caught (not exactly by design) in a net when Alex Perry fell out of a dug-out canoe into the Nile and twisted his leg around the net.

What’s it like fishing in a war zone?
Additional threat of land mines, armed gangs, and the constant threat of military action on the border made fishing in South Sudan rather more dangerous than your average fishing trip. The crew had a Kalashnikov-toting guard with them at all times!

Clooney should have joined Miss Joanne Lumely on her trip in Africa following the Nile. Link Very Happy

The Cloonz looks very very very old !!! Twisted Evil

Running around in Africa seems to be very popular these days. Belgium, well Flanders got its own travelshow Dr. Livingstone, starting today. Suspect

I found out that the time is 12.30 midnight on Sunday. What a time to put on a program! But it's about fishing and that guy is going after a nile perch, but snagged our Georgie! Hell! I'd start fishing if it brought in a catch like George!!!! poisson davril

I am most likely wrong but when I went to get more info it said that it was not on 4oD. I assume that means you cannot watch it on the computer.

Sunday am

Just checked and it now says "coming soon to 4oD" !!
So fingers crossed for you all not in UK.

I'll record it as I'm going away to Cornwall later, but I don't think I'd be able to do anything with it for you to share it.

You can just tell us all about Joanna and how exciting it was to watch him dip his worm in the river holding his rod. Oh, did I just make fishing sexual???? Actually, I think it will be pretty cool and hope that it eventually comes on YouTube or at least on some website so we can all enjoy it.
