The other day, Alan Friswell wrote this to Richard Freeman:
I visited Ray on Thursday, and gave him your book. He loved it, and asked me to pass this on to you:
'Hello Richard. I was delighted to recieve your book. It was very kind of you to send it to me. Alan tells me that you are involved in zoology as well as writing, and I'm very flattered that you include me in your introduction. It's very gratifying when someone was influenced by our films to be creative in their own lives, as it proves that we were doing something more than just producing an entertaining picture. Thank you again for the book, I will enjoy reading it.'
