A few answers to a few questions...

thisworldimage
Can I get copies of programmes on VHS or DVD?
You can order DVD copies of some of the documentaries on this site by going to this site
Or you can look at Simon's Youtube site
here

I'm fed-up and angry about the state of the world!
So don't get depressed - do something! There are hundreds of global campaign groups out there. Find one involved in issues you care about, and sign-up!

Can I join the team?
Simon has travelled with a very small team on his previous trips, and there are no vacancies on Simon's future trips.

Can you tell me about BBC job opportunities?
All BBC jobs are advertised on the
BBC jobs website
The site also includes information on careers and trainee schemes within the BBC.

For all BBC work experience queries please look at:
www.bbc.co.uk/careers/work-experience/

Why is your site called shootandscribble.com?
Simon is the scribbler, and James - his photographer brother - is the shooter...and many years ago it seemed like a good name for a website...

Why does Simon always wear the same shirt in Equator? The Guardian answers this crucial question here.



Can you give me any travel advice?
Unfortunately we're not qualified to offer you any travel advice. We're not the CIA (thankfully), so we don't have a network of spies providing us with accurate and current information about every country in the world (come to think of it, nor do the CIA).
If you visit a strange and obscure country you'll probably have a fantastic, memorable and completely safe trip, but you could also be robbed at gunpoint on your first day or spend three months as a hostage surviving on stale biscuits - and we don't want your mother saying we told you it was safe to go there.

If you plan to go somewhere without a friendly tour rep, check with your government (click below for the British Foreign Office), eat the local live yoghurt to put friendly local bugs in your system, and always,
always wear a seat-belt!
