Kathy’s first documentary ‘Mermaids in Paradise’ when aged 19 (National Screen and Sound Archives)
The underwater photography career of Ben Cropp got a boost with his material of a whale shark and diver off Montague Island NSW in 1965. Very rare footage at the time. Although photographed only with 16mm movie film the quality was good and large prints were enabled. National Geographic magazine later using one of the frames over 3 pages as a centrefold. Still pictures went viral around the world and a documentary would have done well with TV sales.
