Doug Allan: Wild Images, Wild Life at The Courtyard

Join multi-award winning wildlife cameraman Doug Allan for an evening of behind-the-scenes stories at The Courtyard.

This family friendly event will include highlights from the most challenging assignments of Doug’s 35 years filming wildlife in some of the remotest places on Earth.

Born in 1951 in Scotland, Doug graduated with an honours degree in Marine Biology. Upon graduation, he decided that science on the sharp end wasn’t quite where he sought to be. He embarked on a series of diving jobs and his big break came in 1976 when he first went to the Antarctic to work as a research diver on the British Antarctic Survey station at Signy Island in the South Orkneys. It was here that a love affair with ice started and still lasts to this day.

Having filmed for a multitude of series including The Blue Planet, Planet Earth, Frozen Planet and Forces of Nature, Doug Allan has become one of the world’s best known and respected cameramen.

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

Doug Allan: Wild Images, Wild Life will be in The Courtyard’s Main House on Friday 15 November on 7.30pm. To book tickets, or for more information contact the Box Office on 01432 340555 or visit www.courtyard.org.uk.
