Planet Earth II director Chadden Hunter is coming to Manchester to share his funny and fascinating stories of working on the show.
David Attenborough has an extraordinary ability to steal our hearts, completely amaze and bewilder us, and tell off the entire human race all at the same time. He’s inspired many of us to boycott single-use plastics, and has taught us the very useful fact that many amphibians can change their gender whenever they feel like it. But, above all else, he makes some cracking TV.
Planet Earth II captured the imagination of millions of viewers around the world, but have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes? Well, wonder no more, as Fever is hosting a fascinating talk with one of the show’s producers and directors, Dr. Chadden Hunter, and he promises to take you on a magnificent journey through the hidden secrets of Planet Earth’s production.
Chadden will share his stories of living amongst baboons in the Ethiopian highlands, scuba-diving underneath the Antarctic ice-cap, having his cabin ripped apart by grizzly bears, and working alongside Sir David Attenborough himself. There’ll be hilarious anecdotes, never-before-seen footage and insight into whether the BBC series actually does anything to help conservation. There’ll even be a world exclusive sneak preview of his latest Attenborough project, One Planet: Seven Worlds, that’s due to air later this year.
The unmissable talk will take place at the brilliant Manchester Academy, in Manchester Uni students union on September 10, so you can enjoy the captivating footage on the big screen.
