Gem Hunt Vietnam, Gem Hunt Cambodia
NHNZ for Travel Channel, Oct-Nov 2012
Ron LeBlanc and his team of gem hunters travel the world in search of pieces to turn into jewels. In October and November 2012, the Gem Hunters team travelled to Vietnam and Cambodia in partnership with Hanuman Films. We covered them in Northern Vietnam with our old friend and top fixer Trung Trinh or TT for short. In Cambodia, they shot in Pailin in the far west of Cambodia, a former Khmer Rouge stronghold, and then boomeranged back across the country to film in Ratanakiri in the far northeast. These episodes will be broadcast during 2013.
Locations: Ratanakiri, Takeo, Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Pailin
Talent: Gem hunter Ron LeBlanc, jewellery expert Diane Robinson and geologist Bernie Gaboury
