Into The Wild

Gillian Burke-Watch - A chat with Gillian Burke

December 14, 2020

We all watch nature shows on TV....right? Surely you must & these shows always have a face, a voice, a person. Telling us the information we need to fully understand what we are seeing, but how hard is that? Being that person? Both behind & in front of the screen. Well, on today's show & the last episode of 2020, I talk to Spring & Autumn Watch presenter, biologist, voiceover artist, producer, newly appointed vice president of the wildlife trusts AND mother, Gillian Burke.

It was, as always, a pleasure to chat & to hear about Gillian's career & her memories of where it's taken her. Her message? Simple, be yourself & slow down. We talk about the pressure of a presenter, Gillian's favourite invertebrates, a close up with a grey seal, her new role at The Wildlife Trust & what she hopes for the future.
