Here's an update on the development: we've been working hard on the script and have now commissioned Kate Leys, one of the UK's top story editors (look her up here www.kateleys.co.uk ) to review the script. She's going to climb all over it, give us hell, and help to see us through to the next stage. We are very excited to have this opportunity and are looking forward to the feedback. Once this stage is complete we can then begin approaching actors, agents an financiers.

Meanwhile we’ve been amazed and humbled by the breadth of the response to the launch of our kick-starter appeal. We’ve had messages of support from around the world, and some extremely generous donations rolling in. Our huge thanks to everyone who has encouraged the project, and especially to those of you who have kindly offered to help spread the word. With your help, we will get this movie made.

One of the very first supporters of our Kickstarter campaign to raise funding for Unspeakably Wonderful has been the daughter of Sir Percival Hartley (1881 - 1957) CBE MC DSc FRS, who was head of the Medical Research Council Biological Standards Division. Sir Percival was a good friend of Charlie Best, one of the co-discovers of insulin, who never failed to come to see the family whenever he was in the UK. Indeed, his daughter visited Charlie in Toronto in the 1950s. She remembers him particularly as a very pleasant personality who would not be unfriendly to anyone.


We are extremely proud to have received such generous support from someone who actually knew Charlie Best, and we’re happy our movie script reflects the warm personality Sir Percival’s daughter remembers.


Our Charlie is the eternal optimist, hard-working and intensely honourable, able to keep up his good humour even in the face of desperately difficult lab conditions and the initially poor results that he and Fred Banting obtained.
