Doug Allan entertains and informs with stories from behind the scenes, and pictures that pictures will appeal to all ages. Doug takes you up close and personal with animals from the wildest places on Earth. From polar bears of the north, humpback whales in the balmy tropics, to leopard seals and emperor penguins in the south. In Doug's words "put me eye to eye with a big mammal, then I'm in heaven"
With photographic accolades including eight Emmy's and four BAFTA's, and a two time winner of Wildlife Photographer of The Year in the underwater category, Doug has four Honorary Doctorates in recognition of his camerawork, as well as two Polar Medals.
Doug's book Freeze Frame- A Wildlife Cameraman's Adventures On Ice will also be on sale on the night.
