Join us for the Society's annual Children's lecture, this year delving behind the cameras of Planet Earth II: Islands.
Elizabeth White, Producer/Director of Planet Earth II: Islands, takes us behind the scenes of wildlife filmmaking in this Christmas lecture for children aged between six and 14. She will be telling us what it takes to make wildlife television, with behind the scenes tales of adventure from the filming of Planet Earth II: Islands.
Elizabeth White is Producer / Director at the BBC Natural History Unit in Bristol. A former research biologist, she has a particular interest in marine, polar and island wildlife. She produced the Islands episode of the BBC’s Planet Earth II, featuring the thrilling snakes and iguanas sequence which won the BAFTA - Virgin TV Must See Moment for 2016. Her favourite experiences from her career in filming wildlife includes spending two weeks camping among penguins on remote Zavodovski Island and visiting a real igloo!
Geography Ambassadors will provide fun activities on and around our giant floor map after the lecture and tea, coffee and squash will be served.
