Offshore Rutile Planet Video 1970’s
Great to see the “Offshore Rutile” film has survived – even if only as a transfer to You Tube. What has happened to other Planet films such as those of the Durack Ranges prospecting etc?

But, your Planet archive is most welcome to it if you want it. I also have some totally unedited 16mm Kodachrome I shot on Normanby Island – again in a sealed can which, hopefully, may have kept it in good shape. All great Planet memories of times way past – but not forgotten!!
