Everyone in the English speaking world is obsessed with David Attenborough. The reasons are, quite literally, endless and his television shows are always fantastic, highly anticipated and come with a cult-like following of loyal fans.

Planet Earth II & Blue Planet II captured the imaginations of viewers all over the world in recent years but we have more than just Mr Attenbourgh and the silky smooth dulcet tones of his narration to thank.

The film crews on the front lines in some of the world’s most inhospitable locations bring us incredible footage of animals in their natural habitats that we could only dream to see with our own eyes.

I bet you would love to pick the brains of one of these wildlife filmmakers- but now is your opportunity with this exclusive event at The Dance House brought to you by Fever events.

Secrets of Planet Earth II invites award-winning film producer, Dr Chadden Hunter, as he takes us on a fascinating journey through the hidden secrets of Planet Earth II and general wildlife filmmaking.

He will discuss what it takes to become a wildlife filmmaker along with hilarious anecdotes, never-before-seen footage and look at whether major BBC series actually do anything to help conservation.

The talk will start at 6:45 pm and will be followed by a Q&A session which will give you the opportunity to ask all the weird and wonderful questions you have always wanted to ask – you know like ‘are elephants really that big’, ‘why do giraffes have blue tongues?’ or  ‘Do penguins enjoy the musical stylings of Rick Astley?’

The event takes place at The Dance House on Oxford Road on 31st May 2019. Get your tickets ASAP to avoid disappointment.
