Please note that this event is now fully booked - page updated 15 November.

Hosted by the Sustainable Earth Institute, Jonny Keeling, Executive Producer of Seven Worlds, One Planet, talks about the making of the spectacular new series.

Produced by BBC Studio’s Natural History Unit, Seven Worlds, One Planet tells the story of the Earth’s spectacular continents and how they shape the extraordinary animal behaviour and biodiversity we see today. 

Over seven episodes, the series uses new technology, including boundary-defining drone techniques, to capture unique perspectives, new species, and never-before-seen animal behaviour.

Jonny will be discussing how this exciting new series was made, giving a behind-the-scenes view of the four-year, seven-continent production adventure.

This will be followed by a Q&A session chaired by Professor Iain Stewart who has acted as a scientific consultant to the series.
