The Keith Entwistle Memorial Lecture was held on the 26th February, with Doug Allan speaking about his experiences as a renowned wildlife cameraman who has been at the head of some of the top BBC documentaries, including The Blue Planet, Planet Earth, Life, Human Planet and Frozen Planet. It was a fantastic event and we were all gripped listening to his stories of filming humpback whales, polar bears and their cubs in the Arctic and weddle seals in the Antarctic! Thank you so much to Doug for travelling to come speak to us, you have inspired us all!
