Weird question here but since James mentioned something on the podcast about Roger not being able to get his bulbs during a shoot (I think this is what happened anyway), I've been wondering, Roger do you just have a flight case or cases packed with various bulbs? If so, that is great.

I heard rumours for a while that there was a stash of incandescent globes belonging to Roger over here in Australia for a while - I think after shooting Unbroken, but that may not be true. 

It makes sense, Incandescent globes, particularly domestic ones are incredibly hard to find, they're actually banned from being sold over here in Australia.

I wish I'd thought to buy some before they left the shop shelves for good, now I'm stuck with nothing but the halogen versions...

How come they are banned now? I wonder if you can get them in the UK...

I have a dozen or so rare incandescent 1K bulbs that I shipped to Australia when shooting 'Unbroken'. They are useful in certain situations and I also keep some 100, 250 and 500-watt bulbs that I use for firelight effects etc..
