    Wildlife film-making has been my way of life for more than twenty years, ever since I left university aged 22. I got my first job at the world-famous BBC Natural History Unit in Bristol, and stayed there for several years. It was there that I produced and directed episodes of major international projects such as The Life of Birds (with Sir David Attenborough), Realms of the Russian Bear, The Witness was a Fly and Magpie in the Dock. I was Series Producer for Incredible Journeys (about animal migrations) and a two-part Natural World special on Iran.
    In 1998 I moved from the BBC to start work on an exciting new wildlife project for Granada Television; this time I would not only produce the films, I’d also be in front of the camera as a presenter. It was a tough transition to make; presenting is not as easy as it looks!
