With Jonathan and Angela Scott


Author and photographer Jonathan Scott has written about the wildlife of the Masai Mara in western Kenya for over 25 years. Big cats have been the focus of much of his work and Big Cat Diary, the BBC television programme that Jonathan co-presents has been a huge success.

Originally intended to be a one-off series, Big Cat Diary proved so popular that a further eight series have been broadcast to date, plus occasional specials,  drawing over 7 million viewers.

Jonathan gives a fascinating talk accompanied by breathtaking pictures taken by him and his wife Angie who, in addition to taking the production stills  or Big Cat Week, was also one of the show’s big game spotters.
