For my music homework at school I had to come up with a song that meant something to me and present it back in whatever style I wanted to. This is the end result. I thought I would share it with you too.
Some of the badgers are the pictures I took in North Wales and some are from the internet.
Please stop the cull Mr Paterson.

Great Piece of Work Findley !ReplyDelete
That's a powerful video Findlay, it gets the message across perfectly. And I'm not afraid to say that it brought more than a tear to my eye!ReplyDelete
It's just a shame the subject was there for you to pick in the first place!
I hope you've sent copies to Cameron and Patterson and the rest of their cronies? Well done Findlay, I hope someone out there takes note.
Findlay, that was an excellent video. Well done. Paterson should watch this, and hang his head in shame.ReplyDelete
Amazing video Findlay! hopefully Paterson's gonna watch this and think again about the badger cull he enforced.ReplyDelete
well done, findlay. very well presented.ReplyDelete
As Trevor has already said it's a powerful video Findlay and I also admit to having a tear in my eye watching it...ReplyDelete
Badgers are beautiful creatures I feel so lucky to have seen and videoed up close with Mike and Ryan... by the way homework was never like this when I was at skool
Arrrghhh I'm just getting a black screen, any chance of uploading it to You TubeReplyDelete
Here is the you tube link for you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rf5PqQTO9bIDelete

Superb, so powerful. Everyone should watch this! Hope you got an A*!ReplyDelete
Well done young man, a well presented emotive and effective video....ReplyDelete
Unfortunately our politicians have shown themselves to have neither heart nor sense, and the slaughter of this Delightful, important and supposedly protected creature goes on....
One of my favourtie songs (great choice) the lyrics are perfectly in time with the video clips, Brian May (and myself) could/should take a leaf out of your book, this was twenty times better then his hashed up attempt at a protest song, if I was the teacher I would grade that A+.ReplyDelete
I've also subscribed to you mums youtube channel so any other videos Findlay put them on there, for me :o)
You never cease to amaze me Findlay. Not only is this an extremely powerful work, but it is very professionally presented by yourself, and beautifully produced. I too was reduced to tears by this. This should go global, and your effort might just win the fight - it certainly deserves to! I hope that it is brought to Brian May's attention.ReplyDelete
PS - just sent a note with a link to this post to BrianMay.comReplyDelete
Superb! Well done Findlay on a fantastic piece of work, Stop The CullReplyDelete

Fantastic Findlay, glad to see you taking a stand for Badgers, well done mate!ReplyDelete
Lovely video and very well said. Keep up the good work :)ReplyDelete
What a terrific post for the day, Findlay!! A wonderful video! It is sad indeed that there aren't more young people like you! You make me and others so proud!! Thank you!ReplyDelete
Great video! Thank you for helping the Badgers! Keep up the good work!ReplyDelete
Wow. Findlay, all I can say is your parents must be very very proud indeed, you're a huge credit to them lad.ReplyDelete
Super job, Findlay. And yes the ending in your video is very sad.ReplyDelete
Fantastic piece Findlay. I'm right behind you.ReplyDelete
That is a very interesting home-work assignment. Good work!ReplyDelete
Well done - we are going to be in the UK next year - and I want to show my kids these animals - and what is the UK government doing? Killing them.ReplyDelete
Well done again!
Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
Bravo. We need many more young people like you to take care of the world.ReplyDelete
Brilliant stuff Findlay.....you never cease to amaze, hope to see you all soonReplyDelete
Hi Findlay, I think this is great! Well done. I work for the RSPCA and wondered if you would mind me sharing your video on our education Facebook page?ReplyDelete
I would be great to know how old you are and what school you go to as well, so we can give you all the credit.
(RSPCA Digital Education Officer)
Just replying on behalf of Findlay. I know he would be delighted to let you share the video and as his parents we are happy that you can support him in this way. He is 11 and attends County High School Leftwich.
That's fantastic! I will share it this week on the education Facebook and twitter.
Thank you kindly
Felt the tears in my eyes, a brilliant video Findlay, this should have a world wide audience. What an inept and heartless Government we have in this country to permit this to happen.ReplyDelete
Excellent work, very well doneReplyDelete
Excellent Findlay, look after your self kid, we need positive people like you for the future of wildlife, good man!ReplyDelete
HI Finlay What a very professional video your have made for your homework. It tell the story well.The lyrics suit the photographs very well, the shots themselves are excellent, overall TOP MARKS. Now as other have said,I hope the right people can see this video and perhaps you have to see that they do. The people that can make changes to this terrible culling at present NEED to see it and respond. I will watch anyting you do in future with great interest. You are a young man with fantastic vision in the natural world. Congratulation.ReplyDelete
Kudos, Findlay. We need more thoughtful, caring young people like you to stand up for Nature. I'm sharing this, and hope others will as well...ReplyDelete
Superb - well done. Very powerful and moving. I'm not ashamed to say you've reduced a grown man to tears! :)ReplyDelete
Excellent approach, great video, very strong message. If you don't get an A* for this I will be very surprised. Have twittered it and shared amongst my nature friends and all others. Look forward to seeing more of your work.ReplyDelete
Nice one Findlay.. a beautifully put together important video.ReplyDelete
Wow Findlay that is a powerful message. You should send it to Paterson and Cameron and maybe they might feel some guilt.ReplyDelete
I found watching it quite emotional and maybe a tear or two which I am not ashamed of at 70.
Findlay, you are a legend!ReplyDelete
Findlay, I'm almost 72 years old and, like Derek Moore, I watched this through a veil of tears that I am utterly unashamed of. So often I reflect on the fact that so many young people seem unwilling to confront sufficiently realistically the problems affecting out wildlife, globally as well as nationally. Your video and approach filled me with more optimism than I can remember in recent times and for that I thank you profusely. You may not realise the gift you have, my young friend, but please pledge that you will always use it to secure better circumstances for wildlife for which you obviously have a very great interest and perception yourself. I feel happier this Sunday night than the last one, or even the one before, in the knowledge there is someone out there who understands and can communicate the problem. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Hi Findlay, I'm 64 and must admit had a tear in my eye to, but I am cheered up knowing that a young man like you is on the side of Wildlife. Nice to think of you as you grow up helping Wildlife.ReplyDelete

Excellent presentation Finlay let the Govt see this they should be ashamed for what they are doing to our wildlife who have been on this planet before them and will continue well after that have gone

proud of you FinReplyDelete
Hi Findlay. I missed this when you first posted it as I was away. Glad I found it though! This is impressive. I have worked in nature conservation for the last twelve years or so and it is one of the most effective campaign pieces I have seen. A simple and stark message.ReplyDelete

Hi Findlay, I often have a look at this badger blog and so does everyone I know. Do you remember the paralized one we found and Grandpa and you stayed with it until the RSPCA came to take it away. It gave you and Harley a really good chance of seeing a badger close up. we never heard what happened to it.ReplyDelete
