Alan Root shares his wildlife film adventure stories

Where: Watershed, I Canons Road, BS1 5TX

When: 18 September 2012 7:00pm to 8:30pm

ALAN ROOT OBE is a legend among wildlife film-makers - for his knowledge of African wildlife, for the techniques he has pioneered, for his derring-do and for the risks he has taken to achieve the most revelatory shots of nature. Now, he is coming to Bristol to give a Festival of Ideas talk at Watershed, based on his new memoir: IVORY, APES and PEACOCKS:animals, adventure and discovery in the wild places of Africa. The talk is a chance to hear how the career of this wildlife film 'great' began; the many fascinating human and animal characters he's met along the way and how he survived attacks by, among others, a leopard, silverback gorilla, hippo and deadly puff-adder, . This event will take the form of an interview illustrated with clips from Alan's multiple award-winning films. Tickets: £8.00 / £6.50. To book, please contact Watershed, Bristol, on: 0117 927 5100, book online at or visit the Watershed box office, 1 Canons Road, Bristol, BS1.

Entry Cost: £8 (£6.50)
