Steve Backshall confirmed for new BBC series in Alaska

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content and Tom McDonald, BBC Head of Commissioning, Natural History and Specialist Factual, today announce Wild Alaska Live, a major three-part live television event for BBC One, produced by BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit and co-produced by PBS.

The three part series, to be broadcast live across a week in July 2017 from the makers of 2015's BAFTA award winning Big Blue Live, will broadcast one of the greatest wildlife spectacles from one of the remotest corners of Earth.

Viewers will be taken on a live adventure, as the crew broadcasts from across the vast wildernesses of Alaska, one of the last and best places in the world to see these spectacular animals in all their glory.

Steve Backshall, Matt Baker and Liz Bonnin will be there at the most crucial time of year for Alaskan wildlife; the annual salmon run triggers the start of a remarkable summer feast as black bears, brown bears, Kodiak bears, orca, humpback whales, salmon, beavers, salmon sharks, walrus, wolves and many others gather for a summer feast like no other on the planet.

Steve Backshall says: “Alaska is the last frontier of the continent, with forgotten forests the size of nations, cut through with glaciers, mountains and raging rivers. In July an unparalleled explosion of life transforms the wilderness, creating one of the greatest wildlife events on the planet, and we’re going to be there… live.”

Your chance to travel with me to Kenya or the Arctic Circle in 2017

I am thrilled to announce that next year I will be heading to Kenya and the Arctic Circle, leading two trips you can join me on! Organised by wildlife holiday specialists Natural World Safaris, I will be on hand in each location offering expert advice to help you enjoy every wildlife encounter.   If you’ve always wanted to visit the Arctic, join me and 12 other guests in August 2017 in Svalbard for a small-ship sailing around Spitsbergen. We will sail past spectacular scenery of broken sea-ice, magnificent mountains and ancient glaciers in the search for Arctic wildlife: seals, walrus, Arctic foxes, Svalbard reindeer and of course, the majestic polar bear. https://www.naturalworldsafaris.com/holidays/polar-regions/svalbard/ultimate-svalbard-safari-with-steve-backshall   Come September, I’ll be travelling further south to the wide open plains of Kenya on the ultimate big cat and migration safari with just 18 guests. In the Masai Mara, we will go on twice-daily game drives to witness the famed Great Wildebeest Migration for ourselves, as they travel in their thousands with crocs, lions and leopards in hot pursuit! In the evenings, we will stay in a fantastic camp that we have exclusively to ourselves, where we will chat and learn more about each experience we shared that day. https://www.naturalworldsafaris.com/holidays/africa/kenya/big-cats-and-the-great-migration-with-steve-backshall   For more information or to book onto one of these trips, please visit www.naturalworldsafaris.com or call 01273 691 642 to speak with the team at Natural World Safaris.   I hope to see you there!
