Cindy Buxton & Annie Price

Roy Plomley's castaway is filmmaker and photographer Cindy Buxton & Annie Price.

Cindy Buxton made several successful wildlife films in Africa for television. Then, in 1978, she decided to film on the Falkland Islands and managed to persuade Annie Price to give up photographing children to become her assistant.

In conversation with Roy Plomley, they talk about their experiences, about their life during the invasion, and they choose the four records each which they would take to the mythical island.
