As I mentioned a couple of days ago, my Kickstarter Mauritian pirate treasure documentary pitch is now live, and has already picked up its first few backers, all of them long-time Cipher Mysteries supporters (each in their own way) – thank you very much indeed for that, it’s undoubtedly true that the first few steps of a thousand mile journey are the hardest ones. 🙂

Anyway, given that the project plan is to structure the documentary into nine sections, what I’ll be doing here over the next four weeks is writing posts on those same sections – or rather, on what I currently know about them, as well as what I hope to find out about them in Mauritius. Though this won’t quite amount to a “Nageonopedia”, my hope is that it should be the most reliable (and realistic) collection of basic data on the Bernardin Nageéon de l’Estang historical mystery on the Internet or in print.

It may well turn out that better informed (or just plain cleverer) readers can answer one or two of the key research questions without my actually having to go to Mauritius to do so. Moreover, you clever people might also suggest even better research questions than the ones I set out to answer. I don’t mind, though, because these are all positive scenarios as far as I’m concerned, and the documentary would surely continue to develop and move forward in an ever-better direction as a result. 🙂

At the same time, I’m planning (over the next few days) to do some PR to propel the idea of the documentary into the wider cultural ether: so if anyone has any good suggestions for bloggers or journalists to contact about interviews, please let me know, I’m all ears! 🙂

    Undoubtably , you will already have your own list , given this is your thang , I do have a few paths potentially worth following for information and research which may be worth looking into. Some closer to the subject , some not.
    However , there can be a murky side to this kind of interest , which you may or may not be aware of (email me) , better safe than sorry I guess.

  3. Dear Nick, I was unable to get the gist of what you were saying. I could see that you were somewhat uncomfortable in front of an filming camera. Would you be able to find (in ‘your town’) an organization similar to what we have in the US ? The organization is called “Toastmasters USA” . For many years, the club was for men only. My boss sponsored me. I think I have mentioned, before, on your website, the men’s reaction to my large display board of what the foot looked like when an adult woman removed the bindings so that a photographer could present a photo of what was left of a woman’s foot. I didn’t have to say another word.

  4. PS : You and your website are the most com-pelling hist-ory-tellers one can find anywhere on the WWW. Keep up making us to keep up — with the ‘latest”……
