The Making of the BBC series – Hebrides, Islands on the Edge by Nigel Pope
Leading Natural History producer Nigel Pope has been working on a landmark wildlife series about the Hebrides for more than three years.
In this lecture, he’ll explain what goes into making a series like this. From the challenges of filming natural phenomena like the Corryvreckan whirlpool to the strategy for filming white-tailed eagles hunting geese on Islay.
Nigel will also explain some of the background to state of the art techniques including remote cameras, underwater filming and aerial shooting with helicopters. He’ll also revisit some of the influential series he created and produced earlier in his career including Big Cat Week, Springwatch and the Secret Life of Elephants.
