I am not sure if this video has been posted on the forum previously. I did a search but could not find that it had been posted.
The following information about the movie came from the Honeybee Research Centre (CIBER) based at the University of Western Australia. The movie maker's son-in-law is head scientist at the latter research organisation.
("More than Honey": A movie about honey bees:- Over the last 7 years we were involved in the making of a theatrical movie, directed by Swiss movie maker Markus Imhoof. The movie provides fascinating insights into the biology of the honeybee and the relationships between mankind and bees and points out the importance of bees for our food production. The film also pictures a journey that searches for the possible reasons and consequences of the global decline in bee populations.
CIBER provided the scientific advisory for the film, and some of our research is featured as well. The film has so far been screened in more than 23 different countries and won a number of prices such as the Academy awards for best documentary in both Switzerland and Germany.)
At this stage Australia is the only country in the world without varroa mite. Personally, I found the management style of the big American beekeeper, a bit confronting. As he said, his grandfather would not have approved to what he is now doing with the bees.
