Who this event is for
Tom Parry is a young wildlife biologist and filmmaker currently working with the BBC’s Natural History Unit. As a child, he always had a fascination with natural history and all things wildlife, sparked by an obsession with David Attenborough documentaries. Equipped with a First Class degree in Zoology and a Masters in Wildlife Filmmaking, Tom joined the BBC to work on BBC One’s landmark wildlife series Seven Worlds, One Planet. He worked with David Attenborough on his narration and was later asked to interview him for LadBible - in the 20 minute conversation they chatted about their mutual love of animals, shared anecdotes from the field, and discussed what the future holds for wildlife in a human-dominated world.
Working at the Natural History Unit has given him great insight into understanding what television viewers enjoy in natural history, and how to build narratives that will engage and inspire.
Join us for this exciting event, hosted by Brookes University students, to learn more about Tom’s work as a wildlife biologist and filmmaker.
