In January, the BAFTA Television Lecture will be delivered by award-winning broadcaster, wildlife and natural world conservationist, photographer and writer Chris Packham CBE.

Award-winning wildlife and natural world broadcaster, conservationist, photographer and writer Chris Packham CBE will deliver the prestigious BAFTA Television Lecture where he will share his personal view on creative excellence in television and his vision for the future.

Chris Packham’s career as a wildlife expert and natural world broadcaster has spanned more than 30 year. As a broadcaster, Packham has presented many popular natural history programmes, beginning his onscreen career in 1986 when he was a presenter on the multi BAFTA-winning series The Really Wild Show

More recently, Packham fronted popular BBC factual series Springwatch (2009-2018), which was awarded the BAFTA Special Award in 2011. He also embarked on a groundbreaking expedition to the Arctic for BBC Two’s Operation Iceberg (2012), which won the BAFTA for Factual Series at the 2013 British Academy Television Awards.

Chris Packham was also awarded the Wildscreen Panda Award for Outstanding Achievement in 2016 in recognition of his significant contribution to wildlife filmmaking, conservation and the public’s  understanding of the environment.

More recently, Packham explained what it was like to live with Aspergers in the BBC documentary Chris Packham: Aspergers and Me, which won two BAFTAs in 2018 and which was also nominated for Single Documentary at BAFTA’s Television Awards in the same year.

Packham was appointed a CBE in the 2019 New Year Honours for services to nature conservation.
