EC Stories London 9 Mar: Making BBC Documentary Planet Earth II with Elizabeth White


Meet like-minded people. Get inspired. Everyone welcome. Thursday 9th March

6.30pm Doors open.

7.30pm Talk by Elizabeth White about her experiences filming the “Islands” episode of Planet Earth II


Film producer Elizabeth White will share her stories making Planet Earth II, a major BBC Nature documentary series which aired on television in late 2016.

Liz is a hugely experienced natural history film-maker and speaker and will share her adventures making the 'Islands' show of the series and in particular her time on Zavodovski Island in Antarctica filming penguins.

Zavodovski Island is a small island in the South Sandwich archipelago and its volcano Mt Curry has been erupting since March 2016. The island is home to over one million chinstrap penguins – the largest colony for this species in the world.

Along with another ECer (cameraman Max Hug Williams) she spent 6-weeks on expedition to the island, including 2 weeks camping among the penguins.  

To hear about the penguins and filming & living in this spectacular location then please join us on the 9th March.  We hope to see you there.

Venue: Prince of Wales 150-151 Drury Ln, London WC2B 5TD

Please no food to be brought onto the premises. The Prince of Wales does a good value menu and killer burgers.
