Steve Backshall - Voyages to Undiscovered Places
Steve Backshall has been leading expeditions to unknown parts of the world for nearly twenty years. But for the last year, Steve has embarked on his greatest project yet - ten expeditions into dark corners of our planet that have never been seen before.
Inspired by Steve's current BBC series, 'Expedition', his talk encompasses astonishing tales from a year of adventure; taking light into forgotten caves, making first ascents of Arctic peaks, and first descents of Himalayan rivers - he talks of narrow escapes and scrapes plus jaw dropping tales of close calls with near certain death as well as lessons learned from his extraordinary year.
Steve is one of the best loved wildlife presenters in the UK. Suitable for wildlife enthusiasts of all ages from 8 to 80, the event includes an extended Q&A session and book signing. Steve is due to return to our screens on Dave UKTV with Expedition - with Steve Backshall in July this year.
The author and fearless presenter of the Children's BBC series Deadly 60, Live and Deadly, Deadly 360 and Deadly Art, travels the world to learn about the most inspiring predators, from boxing mantis shrimp to charging tigers.
This year, Steve's brand new TV series Expedition - with Steve Backshall will be broadcasting on UKTV Dave in July. He co-presented Blue Planet Live in March 2019 on BBC One and Monster Mountain for CBBC
Recently he co-presented Wild Alaska Live (BBC One, PBS) and received critical acclaim for his canoeing expedition of one of the world's wildest rivers, the Baliem in New Guinea, for Down The Mighty River with Steve Backshall (BBC Two). Previous to this, Steve was on our screens in the two-part series Extreme Mountain Challenge (BBC Two) and Fierce (ITV). In 2016 Steve co-presented the hugely successful series Big Blue Live (BBC One, PBS) live from Monterey, California.
