Andy’s Wild Adventures is a new 20x15 minute wildlife series like no other!
Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of Children's Natural History Programming in 2012, CBeebies presenter Andy Day goes on a rollercoaster ride around the world visiting some amazing countries and coming face to face with some fascinating creatures.
Using footage from the BBC Natural History Unit’s stunning archive combined with the latest digital CGI and green-screen technology, Andy finds out what it’s like to hang out with mountain gorillas up in the treetops of Africa; dance with flamingoes in Kenya and snuggle up with Emperor penguins in Antarctica.
Andy works as a keeper at Pickles Animal Park. Every day he does the rounds, chatting to the animals he sees along the way and doing his chores before reporting back to his trusty and curious sidekick Kip, a puppet cat that lives in their workshop.
Inspired by Andy’s animal encounters and his stories of the natural world, they decide to go on a wild adventure to find out more about animals in the wild.
Taking viewers where no other wildlife presenter has ever dared to go, Andy's Wild Adventures opens up a world of incredible wildlife images and jaw-dropping facts as they explore some of the wildest and most fascinating places on Earth. Andy’s Wild Adventures is made by the BBC Natural History Unit, executive produced by Wendy Darke for NHU, Adrian Mills for CBeebies and Henrietta Hurford-Jones for BBC Worldwide Global Channels. The series is produced by Charlotte Crosse.
