World Class

It's time for the annual influx of overseas visitors into the UK from Poland, Iceland, Ethiopia and South Africa. These visitors have no nationality, passports or visas, but they are frequent fliers to the UK with a lot of air miles! No we’re not talking about builders but birds - like the swallow, starling, whooper swan and cuckoo. BBC World Class is working with WOTM to help UK schools twin with schools abroad along bird migration paths. Visit to join in, catch the birds next flight out to their summer homes and share the tracking with a new partner school.


Here is a list of the organisations that we at World on the Move have worked with in 2008

Thanks for the background silhouettes to:


Philippa Forrester

A regular TV anchor of Tomorrows World, Robot Wars and Barking Mad until she discovered Wildlife! As a mature student she studied Environmental Biology at University and together with her husband have a wildlife film company making programmes for the BBC2 strand Natural World. My Halcyon River won critical acclaim. Her debut on radio was a Saturday show with Radio Bristol before her network debut on Radio 4 with World on the Move.

Brett Westwood

Regular presenter of Radio 4's Nature and self confessed natural history book worm. There is also nothing that slithers, flies, stirs, scuttles, gallops or grows in the British countryside that Brett doesn't know about. He is in the premier league of British naturalists and an infectious communicator. An experienced reporter on local radio, World on the Move is Brett's first live network event.
