Two award-winning filmmakers behind David Attenborough’s acclaimed BBC series Planet Earth and the celebrated naturalist’s new Netflix show Our Planet will address the Just a Drop charity’s For the Love of Nature event at the Royal Geographical Society next week (25 April).
Huw Cordey and Patrick Morris will share the stories that have inspired them throughout their 30 years of wildlife filmmaking before taking part in an audience Q&A session, led by Just a Drop patron and presenter of BBC’s HARDTalk Stephen Sackur. The pair last appeared at the annual talk in 2016, when they presented Life Behind the Lens.
“For the Love of Nature is a great opportunity for us to share some of our personal stories about the wildlife, people and the environment that have truly inspired us over the past 30 years of natural history filmmaking all over our planet,” said Morris.
“What we’ve learned, the incredible people we’ve met, those wildlife ’never seen before’ moments and the highs and lows we’ve experienced while following those dreams.
"We are especially pleased to be supporting Just a Drop given that water is such a precious resource to all life on earth.”
Just a Drop is an international development charity working to bring sustainable safe water, sanitation and hygiene projects to communities around the world in greatest need.
All proceeds from For the Love of Nature will go towards Just a Drop’s projects.
Fiona Jeffery OBE, chairman and founder of Just a Drop, added: “Huw and Patrick really understand how essential water is to life on this planet. I look forward to a gripping evening as they share their wildlife filmmaking stories.”
