Episode 5 - Jon Lien - July 26 & 29
Jon Lien was the Whale Man, a shaggy-haired Viking from South Dakota who saved hundreds of whales from certain death in the waters off Newfoundland; the animal behaviourist found a way to get the marine giants co-operation, to let him free them from the fishing nets they were trapped in. In the process, he helped two species - the fisherman and the whale - learn to co-exist. He was also a passionate professor; an organic farmer; and a man who loved life, and his family, in equal measure. Jon was and is an inspiration to those who seek new and innovative answers to old problems.
The documentary on Jon Lien was by Ted Blades in St. John's.
