Dr. Lawrence Blair
Dr. Lawrence Blair has spent much of the past 40 years living in, exploring and making films about Indonesia. In 2006 he wrote and presented, for SKY TV UK, the five-part series Myths, Magic and Monsters, which explores the stranger sides of both nature and the human mind. He is also the writer, presenter and co-producer (with his late brother, Lorne) of the internationally acclaimed series RING OF FIRE, (PBS in the States, and BBC in the UK) which won two Emmy awards in l988, and awakened the world to Indonesia’s existence. In addition to having been Visiting Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Southern California, Lawrence has also co-written and or co-presented such documentary films as Bali – Island of the Dogs, Baraka, and The Coral Triangle, which has been airing this year on Animal Planet. Lawrence is much in demand as a speaker both on cruise ships and private expeditionary vessels to the remotest parts of Indonesia.
