Something Wild 2010
With Chris Packham & Paul Goldstein
Paul Goldstein and Chris Packham are good friends and sparring partners and have lectured both here and abroad together. This will be a dazzling look at their wildlife inventory from 2010. This will include Spitsbergen, the Mara, Spring and Autumnwatch takes and outtakes, Sri Lanka, Gambia, India, even Morocco and of course the New Forest! Neither are short of an opinion and are particularly merciless when dealing with many issues but particularly each other. This will be a spectacular evening and not to be missed.
Neither Paul nor Chris are strangers to the RGS but on the 24th November they plan on putting on a new show as they highlight their past year in photographs.
Both are well-known for being outspoken, contentious and passionate about their craft and particularly about wildlife. Sometimes they even agree with each other. Chris will be in the middle of his busy Autumnwatch schedule so we are delighted he has agreed to take the podium with Paul.
Each month of the year will be covered from around the globe including the UK. Both promise that the majority of images will be new ones from this year and the culprits and critters will include cheetahs, leopards, owls, bears, foxes, lions, otters and many more.
Both are fiercely critical of their own (and each other's) images so expect some niggling aggro between them as well as some good natured banter. However both have very strong opinions of conservation, endangered species and charity work. This will be a spectacular and very lively evening - you have been warned!
