Worldwide interest in Ed Stafford

Friday, July 30, 2010

Press Contact's client Ed Stafford is being followed every day by CNN's 'One World' show in 240 territories worldwide. His story has been picked up in the Portugese press, Slovenian press, Turkish press, in the French press and Brazilian press today. Yesterday we heard from a Swiss journalist and were approached by another independent tv production company.

Stephen Fry Twittered about Ed as did the world-record holding cyclist Mark Beaumont.

I wake up with the light, just before 6 a.m., and reach for my vitamin pills hanging above my hammock. I get out of bed and peer through the gloom to see if Cho is up yet and has started the fire. If so, I will probably go to the river and check the fishing net to see if we have a catch. Explorer nears end of Amazon quest updated July 24, 2010
