Gordon Buchanan

Gordon has made his name in British wildlife filmmaking, both as a cameraman and a presenter.

Originally from Tobermory on the Isle Of Mull, Gordon has spent the last twenty years filming the wild, the weird and the wonderful animals that we share the planet with. Travelling to some of the world’s remotest corners he has worked across a wide variety of natural history programmes.

I was intrigued to venture to a place where few outsiders have travelled

With a passion for raising awareness about the fragility of the world’s endangered species and habitats, Gordon has filmed around the globe, in South America, Asia, Africa, the Arctic, Papua New Guinea, Russia and Alaska. When not gallivanting, his spare time is spent at home in Glasgow with his wife Wendy and two children, Lola and Harris.

Gordon has appeared on our screens in numerous BBC series including: The Polar Bear Family & Me, The Bear Family and Me, and challenging expeditions such as Lost Land Of the Tiger, Land of the Lost Wolves and most recently Wild Burma: Nature’s Lost Kingdom.
