Colin has lived with wildlife first hand from filming tigers at close range in India to touring Ireland in his camper van. Colin’s shows 'Secret Life of the Shannon''Wild Ireland, Edge of the World' and 'Living the Wildlife' have lead to adventures in every corner of our homeland. In his latest adventure ‘Wild Ireland’, Colin discovered Ireland, and in particular the Atlantic coast, with a fresh and invigourating eye. Exploring on a currach, Colin journeyed from the Skellig Islands to the Blasket Islands, the Macgillycuddy’s Reeks and Clew Bay in Mayo.

In India, Colin Stafford-Johnson explored the tiger population which is rapidly declining - something he is passionately concerned about. Colin filmed the BBC documentary ‘A Tiger called Broken Tail’ which featured a mother tiger Maccli and her son, christened Broken Tail by Colin and the crew. In this fascinating film Colin follows the life and adventures of Broken Tail, highlighting the plight of tigers in the wild in another beautiful piece of work by Stafford-Johnson.

Learn about Colin's most special wildlife encounters close to home and abroad in what promises to be a spell binding evening.
