With Biologist and Filmmaker Jane Atkins
Brought up in Africa Jane Atkins was inspired by the extraordinary places she visited with her parents that included wildlife parks in Zambia and Zimbabwe, lakes and mountains in Malawi, and war-torn Ethiopia and Eritrea. She trained as a biologist and film-maker, and spent 12 years at the BBC Natural History Unit during which time she worked on landmark series such as ‘Human Planet’ and ‘Alaska: Earth’s Frozen Kingdom’. Travelling to places as diverse as Papua New Guinea and Texas has deeply affected her thoughts about cultures and religion, yet the natural world – its quietness, beauty, inspiration and wonder - has always been something of a sacred place for Jane. In this talk she shares the fascinating story of how she combined her passions in photography, art and the natural science to ‘find her own path’.
“Join us for a stimulating afternoon in the company of Jane Atkins as she shares inspirational episodes from her life as a biologist and filmmaker”
