    Harvey Brownstone Interviews Eduardo Goncalves, Founder of The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, Conservationist, Activist and Author

    Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth interview with Eduardo Goncalves, Founder of The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting, Conservationist, Activist and Author
    About Harvey's guest: 
    Did you know that, every 3 minutes, a defenceless animal is killed by a trophy hunter?  
    Last year we featured filmmakers Lynn Santer and James Ganiere to discuss their award-winning film, “Land of the Free: In the Shadows”, which exposes the horrors and monstrosity of the so-called “sport” of trophy hunting of endangered species.   
    Today’s special guest is Eduardo Goncalves, the world’s foremost expert, author and advocate in the battle to ban this barbaric “recreational activity” engaged in by the super rich.   
    In 2018, he established an organization called “The Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting”.  He rapidly made trophy hunting the biggest animal welfare and conservation issue in Britain.  His investigations have exposed how some of the world’s most endangered species are being cruelly killed by the thousands, simply for fun.   
    Our guest has brought together politicians, the media, public figures, the business community and the general public, in support of a ban on trophy imports into the UK.   And now, he’s leading an international campaign, to abolish trophy hunting and ban trophy imports across the world.   
    He’s written many books, including 
    ×          “Trophy Hunters Exposed:  Inside the Big Game Industry” 
    ×          “Killing Game: The Extinction Industry”
    ×          “Trophy Leaks: Trophy Hunters and Industry Secrets Revealed”
    ×          “Undercover Trophy Hunter:  Britain’s Top 20  Hunters Revealed” and
    ×          The Fox, the Hound and the Human  
    He’s a renowned conservationist, and he coordinated the World Wildlife Federation’s “One Planet Living” initiative, which developed the first global footprint calculator for consumers.

    And who can ever forget him as the straight-laced British commentator working opposite Fred Willard in Christopher Guest’s brilliant film, “Best in Show”?  He also starred in several Broadway shows including “Present Laughter”, “Design for Living” and the original production of “Noises Off”.   And he’s appeared in dozens of TV shows including “Mad About You”, “The Drew Carey Show”, “Lost”, “Two and a Half Men”, “Friends”, “ER”, “Modern Family”, “Castle”, and so many more.

    If that weren’t enough, our guest is a superb and compelling raconteur, who recently released a highly entertaining and refreshingly frank and candid memoir entitled, “Caught With My Pants Down and Other Tales from a Life in Hollywood”.   This insightful, candid, and often hilarious book is an absolute MUST-READ for anyone having an interest in what really goes on in the world of show business.

    Harvey Brownstone Interviews Melissa Manchester, Legendary Singer / Songwriter

    Harvey Brownstone Interviews Melissa Manchester, Legendary Singer / Songwriter

    Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth interview with Melissa Manchester, Legendary Singer / Songwriter 
    About Harvey's guest: 
    Today’s special guest is one of the greatest singer-songwriters and performers of our time.  Melissa Manchester started out in 1971 as one of the “Staggering Harlettes”, the backup group to Bette Midler.  But soon after launching her tremendously successful solo career, she had her first top 10 hit, "Midnight Blue".   
    A quick succession of hit songs followed, including “Come in From the Rain”, “Whenever I Call You Friend”, “Don’t Cry Out Loud”, which earned her a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Female Performance, and “Through the Eyes of Love” and “I’ll Never Say Goodbye”, which BOTH got Academy Award nominations in the same year, and “You Should Hear How She Talks About You”, which won her a Grammy for Best Pop Female  Performance, AND her wonderful version of Dionne Warwick's classic, "Walk on By".  And I can’t resist mentioning my personal favourites, “Fire in the Morning”, “It’s All in the Sky Above”, “Help is on the Way”, and “Feeling’ for You” from her FABULOUS jazz album, “You Gotta Love the Life”.    
    Her rich, powerful voice is unparalleled.  Her career is remarkable, not only for its longevity and accomplishments, but for its versatility.  She’s literally done it all.  She appeared with Bette Midler in the movie, “For the Boys”.  She co-wrote and starred in the musical, “I Sent a Letter to my Love”.  She’s composed songs for movies.  She starred in the national tours of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Music of the Night” AND “Song and Dance”, which I had the pleasure of seeing in Toronto.   She created the role of “Maddy” on the hit TV series “Blossom”.  Last November she was inducted into the Great American Songbook Foundation Hall of Fame.    
    AND NOW, she’s released her 22nd album:  a brand new double CD LIVE CONCERT from 1977 that has NEVER been publicly available until now.

    Harvey Brownstone Interviews Giedrė Žickytė, Lithuanian Filmmaker and Director of “The Jump”

    Harvey Brownstone Interviews Giedrė Žickytė, Lithuanian Filmmaker and Director of “The Jump”

    Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth interview with Giedrė Žickytė, Lithuanian Filmmaker and Director of “The Jump”
    About Harvey's guest: 
    Today’s guest is Giedre Zickyte, a highly acclaimed filmmaker from Lithuania whose latest film, entitled “The Jump”, chronicles one of the Cold War's most complex and suspenseful episodes.   
    On November 23, 1970, a Lithuanian seaman by the name of  Simas Kudirka, jumped from a Soviet fishing vessel that was anchored just off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, onto the US Coast Guard ship “Vigilant”, desperately seeking political asylum.  The US Coast Guard, however, returned him to the Soviets, who convicted him of treason and sentenced him to 10 years in a concentration camp. This incident, commonly referred to as the US Coast Guard’s “Day of Shame”, is widely considered to be one of the biggest political blunders of the Cold War.  And it set off a series of protests throughout the United States and marked the beginning of a long political battle to save Mr. Kudirka and bring him and his family to America, which finally happened in 1974.    
    The film is now available on Amazon, Apple TV and a number of other streaming platforms.  Our guest’s films, including “Baras”, “How We Played the Revolution”, “Master and Tatyana” and “I’m Not From Here", have won 14 Film Festival Awards.
