I remember meeting Bob Connolly and Robin Anderson in Hagen when they were working on First Contact. They stayed some of the time up at Maggie (Leahy) Wilson’s “Haus Poroman” Lodge up at Kuta Ridge. On retrospect I think part of the appeal of the documentaries First Contact, Joe Leahy’s Neighbours, and Black Harvest is the openness. I think there was a “warts and all” approach.
To the best of my knowledge, Dan Leahy’s family still have the plantation at Korgua, in the Nebilyer. Some of Dan’s clan, still run businesses in Hagen. Old Dan was an uncle of Joe.
Two of Joe Leahy’s brothers, Clem and John, - both sons of Mick Leahy, have died in the past few years. Maggie (Leahy) Wilson, who also died some years ago, herself produced some good films.
