BBC Wildlife Producer & Researcher gives talk at the Hive

On October 27th 2017, BBC Wildlife Producer & Researcher Louise Emerson is giving a talk at the Hive in Shrewsbury about her life and career with the BBC creating wildlife documentaries. The talk takes place at 1PM and costs £4 for adults, £2 for children and £2 for OAPs.

Emma Croall, Programmes & Projects manager at the Hive said: “Thanks to funding by Film Hub North West we are able to screen films here at The Hive in a relaxed setting offering people films they might not usually get to see on a large screen, and also to combine this with talks and workshops by those involved in the film industry”.

Louise Emerson has worked on projects with David Attenborough including “David Attenborough’s Nature’s Great Events” and in the talk, she will discuss her experiences with working on these documentaries, what it is like to explore the world and the many stories she has picked up along the way, including coaxing a cameraman afraid of heights up a cliff in the Antarctic and coming across polar bears in the wild.

This talk forms part of a “Wild Season” taking place throughout Autumn at the Hive where they showing a variety of films and running a range of workshops all with a wild theme.

Prior to Louise’s talk on Friday 27th October The Hive are screening “Project Wild Thing” which explores the idea of reconnecting children with nature guided by a Dad who appoints himself as ‘Marketing Director for Nature’. Also taking place in the October Half Term is an owl themed pottery workshop for children aged 4 to 9 years.
