Return to the River

Diary of a Wildlife Cameraman

BBC Frozen Planet and The Hunt cameraman Stephen de Vere films and narrates the insider guide to the wildlife of the British waterway.

Otter families, tiny water shrews, kingfishers and water voles – secret worlds just as poignant and fascinating as those he’s filmed on the African plains.

“My father loved and campaigned to protect the river. After he died I thought: How can I pick up where he left off ?”
