Hi All,

Well the subject says it all really, and if you have an interest in the world of the Flea Circus don't miss 'David Attenborogh's Natural Curiosity's' on Watch TV ( UK Sky channel 109 and Virgin 124, 191) on Monday the 2nd of February!
The first episode of his new series features our real flea circus (with my humbug Mossman as a backdrop). Svensons were the Flea experts for the filming, we supplied the props, then harnessed and trained the fleas for Humble Bee Films.
What a genuine privilege and pleasure it was to meet and work with Sir David, one of the nicest chaps I've ever met, it was truly surreal to be standing next to him when he says, "this is a real live Flea Circus!"
It was Davids idea to feature a flea circus as he has been fascinated by them for years, but oddly he had never seen a real one (I suppose theres not many of us left): imagine being able to show David Attenborogh something of the natural world that he's never seen before!
Anyway, please don't miss the program, and I hope you all enjoy Bernie the fleas 'acting' and his brief moment of fame!
I think the only shot with me in the footage was just my fingers! lol

Hello! I wish that I could have seen it! It wasn't broadcast on any channel that I could get.

My dear late friend, John Shirley (of BALLOON BARRAGE 'FAME')master puppeteer, good magician, and general old showman, built a flea circus in the '70s. He mainly used it when he worked hospitality suites in Chicago. John had great success with it! NOVELTY!!!

Glad you had the opportunity to play a national TV show with your circus!

Hallelujah! After 70 years in the business, I have just had a "center ring - front row seat" ("star backs & bibles!!!) for the first REAL Flea Circus that I've ever seen. THANK YOU "RAVEN"!!!!!

Hope to see you down the road!
