Wildlife cameraman John Aitchison often finds himself in isolated and even dangerous locations across the globe filming wildlife. In this series he reflects on the uniqueness of human experience, the beauty of nature, the fragility of life and the connections which unite society and nature across the globe as he films Adelie penguins taking their first plunge, encounters some funky chickens in Kansas, discovers the art of patience in the company of polar bears, learns to feel empathy amongst a colony of aggressive fur seals and films one of Nature’s greatest feeding spectacles in the Aleutian islands..

Written and Presented by wildlife cameraman John Aitchison.
Additional sound recordings by Chris Watson and Miles Barton. Produced by Sarah Blunt.
