Talk by Dr Chadden Hunter - Down to Planet Earth

The Dolphin Centre

Planet Earth II captured the imagination of viewers around the world. But how did the BBC film crew find their amazing animal stories? And how did new technology enable them to take viewers on a more immersive journey through each habitat? Join award-winning producer Dr Chadden Hunter, as he reveals the secrets of making Planet Earth II, gives rare insights into wildlife filmmaking and shares never-seen-before footage from the series.

Dr Chadden Hunter is an Australian wildlife biologist and filmmaker. After completing a PhD on gelada baboons in Ethiopia, Chadden worked with National Geographic and Discovery Channel, filming everything from tribes in Africa to snow leopards in Pakistan. On the BBC series Planet Earth he became known as 'the guy covered in bat poop', and whilst filming arctic wolves for Frozen Planet learnt that minus 40°C was cold enough to freeze his eyes shut. His credits include series producer on Wild Arabia which was nominated for two Emmy awards. While producing the ‘Grasslands’ episode for Planet Earth II Chadden discovered a new-found respect for any rhinoceros he meets on foot in long grass.
