A Wild Life: My Adventures Around the World Filming Wildlife

Martin Hughes-Games

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Autobiography: arts & entertainment, Prose: non-fiction, The Earth: natural history general

From the charismatic presenter of the BBC's primetime nature series, a thrilling and often hilarious memoir recounting the trials and tribulations of filming the natural world.

'These adventures are a repository of joy, despair and cunning success candidly peppered with lovely nuggets of natural history - an absolutely irresistible read.' Chris Packham

The frozen wastes of the Southern Ocean; the tropical rainforests of South America, the scorching grasslands of Africa, the dizzy heights of the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas: Martin Hughes-Games has been to every continent on earth filming natural history programmes. A WILD LIFE is Martin's personal account of his astonishing adventures around the world, both as a presenter for the BBC and a producer of nature documentaries.

We all know Martin as a member of Springwatch and Autumnwatch team, but before his presenting days he spent many years behind the camera producing up-close-and-personal wildlife documentaries on location often in perilous conditions. During a career spanning more than three decades, he has captured the extraordinary life and diversity of the animal kingdom on film - from bloodthirsty bats and man-eating tigers, to huge elephant seals and tiny but ever so painful centipedes.

Warmly told with humour and an inimitable style, and packed with insightful facts from the natural world - how fast is the fastest creature on earth, the peregrine falcon? How high can a bird, the bar headed goose on migration, really fly? - A WILD LIFE has to be one of the natural history books of the year.
