"When I asked Jan Schlauer (CPN coeditor)
and Frank Gallep (GFP president) about the possibility of recording the 2nd Conference
of the ICPS on video, they both told me this would be a good idea. Somehow it
happened that I had torecord the major
part of this tape with a camera borrowed from my friend! So this recording is
purely amateur and I would like to apologize for that.
I also deeply regret I was not able to record at least some shots of the first few lectures due to technical problems. The lectures on Nepenthes held in the afternoon of the last day were not recorded as well because we had to leave the conference early. What is a pity there was nobody willing to do that on my behalf! I sincerely hope you will enjoy at least the recorded parts."

ex-president of DARWINIANA
(Czech and Slovak Carnivorous Plant Society)
"The famous CP-expert produced 1998 in Bonn a VHS system video on the International Carnivorous Plant Society (ICPS) World Conference, all in the English language. 200 minutes footage show numerous slide-shows on carnivorous plants by international experts. In spite Ivo had no digital editing place this video should not be missing in every library on the subject worth mentioning."
"Ivo Koudela sent copies of the tapes to me. He had written all over them that they were not professionally made, and had other disclaimers etc. Well, I understand that they were not professional tapes and the quality was not great all the time, but I absolutely recommend you try to see these videos if you can. Ivo did a marvelous job with them and I had a blast seeing them. (I finally got a chance to see what a Paul Temple looks and sounds like.)"
