Videos from Roger's Memorial and from Two of Our Far Flung Correspondents

A tribute to Roger would be incomplete without some moving images. Roger might have modestly blushed at all the fuss of the memorial service in the first two videos, but he would have been delighted at the creativity of the last two videos, made by two of our Far Flung Correspondents.
