Wildlife filmmaker Gordon Buchanan has filmed animals all around the world, but unlike most other wildlife cameramen, he lives up close and personal with them in their natural habitat. Bottle feeding, cuddling and playing with baby bear cubs, The Times newspaper reported: “Buchanan really does have the best job on TV”. Gordon is best known for his series Grizzly Bear Cubs and Me, Elephant Family and Me, Gorilla Family and Me, and Polar Bear Family and Me, as well as numerous other award-winning wildlife and expedition films.

His show promises a unique opportunity to hear personal recollections of his globetrotting travels, as he delves into his world of wonderful wildlife all illustrated with his own film footage and photography. With a reputation for relishing dangerous and tough assignments, his tales of challenging expeditions as well as the cutest animal footage possible, make for a thrilling evening not to be missed.
