Expert Voices for the BBC Natural History Unit

As part of their ‘Expert Voices’ search, the BBC Natural History Unit are looking for potential contributors and presenters of the future. Ideally they are looking for people who are experts in the life sciences, earth sciences or natural history, and who are passionate enough to want to share their expertise and knowledge.

They will be holding a limited number of informal meet and greet sessions at the Cambridge International Science Festival from 15th to 18th March 2017. If you are interested in attending one of these sessions then please get in touch with them with the following details:

  • Name;
  • Brief bio or CV including current role and location;
  • A personal statement to tell us your interests, expertise and experiences (500 words max.);
  • If possible: a short film of no more than 2 minutes duration. This could be as simple as a friend recording you on a smartphone, e.g. during a ‘talk’, or talking to camera to tell us about your job/the animals you work with/your area of expertise. If you are able to do this then please upload your film, either to YouTube or Vimeo, and send the link.
  • Availability during 15th–18th March.

Applicants from all age ranges and levels of experience are welcome.

Please send your details to the BBC Natural History Unit via NHUTalent@bbc.co.uk  The closing date for the Cambridge International Science Festival is 10th March 2017.
