Doug Allan: Wild Images, Wild Life

'Wildlife cameramen don’t come much more special than Doug Allan’ - Sir David


Join multi-award winning wildlife cameraman Doug Allan for an evening of behind

the scenes stories for all the family, with highlights from the most challenging

assignments of his 35 years filming wildlife in the remotest places on Earth. Find out

if snow leopards or leopard seals are the most scary; discover how to get close to

the biggest fish in the sea and whether your eyeballs freeze at minus 50.

Born in Fife, Doug Allan spent seven years in Antarctica as a Scientist, research

diver and photographer for the British Antarctic Survey, before

changing direction to full time freelance filming in 1983.

Since then he has become one of the world’s best known and respected

cameramen, specialising in natural history, expeditions and science

documentaries. In his 35 year filming career, he's worked for the BBC, Discovery,

National Geographic and many others, filming for series including The Blue

Planet, Planet Earth, Human Planet, Frozen Planet, Ocean Giants, Operation

Iceberg, Wild Cameramen at Work, and Brian Cox’s Forces of Nature.

This new presentation traces Doug’s personal journey as he discusses how he’s seen pollution and climate change affect the natural world.

Copies of Doug’s book Freeze Frame will be on sale, as well as his colour prints of

polar bears, penguins and seals.

Suitable for all ages
