My interest in the creative arts was sparked as a relative youngster with a venture into sponsorship of Music Theatre London , specialising in bringing classic opera to new audiences. A number of classical music/opera related film projects were followed by light drama before deciding to get involved in a bigger way with Provenance a drama produced by Afinia and largely set in France ,which went on to win Best Film and Best Supporting Actor awards at the Madrid International Film Festival with nominations for the lovely and talented Charlotte Vega as best actress.
The relationship with Parkland Pictures began from there and has culminated in the Nov 21 2019 agreement to collaborate more formally.
The Biggest Little Farm is a venture close to my heart. Indeed it is a natural development of my growing interest in good nutrition as the foundation of good health for people of all ages and as a crucial " treatment" for the chronic diseases of civilisation developing at an exponential rate across the world.
The core of good nutrition is quality foods including animal proteins produced from grazing on nutrient rich soils. It is fortunate that the very same elements that create good health, for humans and the animals that rely upon us , is also good for the planet. The Biggest Little Farm demonstrates that wonderfully well.
Whilst this collaboration with Parkland is our first venture into actually distributing content, I have been involved in a number of projects in the health and nutrition fields, both in developing concepts and in executive producing content as set out below.
Expect more to come in health, nutrition and sustainability . Through my own research I now know that is is perfectly possible for one to become healthier as one ages and that chronic diseases especially T2 diabetes do not need to remain debilitating. Indeed for myself it was a pretty simple job to reverse my own T2 diabetes and fortunately many of those around me have found the same process works for them too.
Malta sits at the heart of the famed " Mediterranean diet" . My version of that Mediterranean diet recognises the crucial role that animal meats have had in a traditional Mediterranean diet. I eat meat, fish, dairy, eggs, cheeses, cream, butter and I do not bother with processed foods including pasta, rice or bread. This is generally known as a " Low Carb" diet. Malta has some great restaurants to indulge in Low carb. versions of the Mediterranean Diet. You can find out more about this by googling LCHF or Keto or following the liks provided below.
Our properties have fully equipped kitchens. So if anyone would like to come to our lovely island , have a great time and at the same time find out how to reverse T2 diabetes do get in touch !
In the same way that my forays into the field of theatre and opera were designed to bring those art forms to new audiences, so my goal in developing and supporting new content will include a focus on bringing the news that good health is a function of good food which is a function of sustainable farming, to as many people as possible throughout the world .
I am in complete agreement with Molly Chester and I could not be more delighted in finding an opportunity to help bring that message to the public in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Eire. Hopefully we can add Malta, Gibralter, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and St Helena to the growing list ere too long.
Film is a wonderful medium, there is nothing like becoming deeply absorbed in a story, across a diverse range of subjects. Our collaboration with John and Parkland will enable us to do exactly that.
Our positioning in Malta leaves us ideally placed to help us provide quality content to the many visitors visiting Malta from across the world.
Our additional focus on finding ways to disseminate good health, nutrition and sustainability information through popular media to audiences who might otherwise not find out will underpin our business plan.

Everyone deserves NORMAL blood sugars. So, why is it that children and adults who are diagnosed with diabetes are given dietary guidelines that set them up or a lifetime of chaotic blood sugars and a future fraught with complications? We KNOW the solution. The answer lies in food.
Why does this matter? Current research shows that women who developed type 1 diabetes before the age of ten years die an average of nearly 18 years earlier than women who do not have diabetes. Men in the corresponding situation lose almost 14 years of life.
This is LIFE. Years of adulthood that we aren't willing to sacrifice for our children.

I googled severe T2 diabetes on the day diagnosed. I found a scientific paper, buried inside was one sentence
" One female patient had an increased physical activity level during the study period in spite of our instructions. However, her increase in physical activity was no more than one hour of walking per day, four days a week. She had implemented an 11%-carbohydrate diet without any antidiabetic drug, and her HbA1c level decreased from 14.4% at baseline to 6.1% after 3 months and had been maintained at 5.5% after 6 months. "
If she could do it - so could I . I found out that many others knew too
