The film was for an application to the Scientific Exploration Society's Explorer Award. The SES is a charity whose aim is to enable the next generation of scientific explorers. The Explorer Award is one of six grants administered by the SES, and in 2022 this film helped James Kempton win the Explorer Award for Expedition Payangko, an expedition looking for Attenborough's long-beaked echidna - an animal last seen 62 years ago in the Cyclops Mountains.
