Dr. Mike Gunton, Executive Producer of Planet Earth II and Creative Director of the BBC Studios Natural History Unit, will be appearing as a special guest on the forthcoming UK & Ireland arena tour to offer insight and stories from behind the scenes.
Mike Gunton has been producing natural history programmes for over thirty years and has worked very closely with Sir David Attenborough on many documentaries, including Planet Earth II.
Mike says: “Planet Earth II is particularly special because it did reset how we make wildlife films and it really engaged the audience reaction with wildlife film making. The number of people who watched the series globally was huge and it changed the way people think about the environment and our natural world. Planet Earth II has effectively become the ‘mother ship’ of a whole series of projects that are now being made and we’re delighted because it has rebooted the public connection with the environment and wildlife. I can’t wait to take part in the UK arena tour and share special stories and insights with the audience.”
Following on from the recent success of the 2019 Blue Planet II Live In Concert tour, these not-to-be-missed live concerts feature breathtaking, specially-selected footage shown in 4K ultra high-definition on a gigantic LED screen.
In this spectacular arena event, audiences get to rub shoulders with our acrobatic primate cousins in the steaming jungles of Madagascar, race alongside fearsome hunting lions in the remote sandy deserts of Namibia and feel the raw tension as a baby iguana tries to escape the clutches of deadly racer snakes.
Planet Earth II Live in Concert comes to Glasgow on 4 April 2020, with further dates and tickets all visible here: https://www.planetearth2live.uk/
