Talk on the wild side

TV presenter, adventurer and author Steve Backshall faced an eager panel of 30 students carrying out an exclusive interview with him for their very own radio station – Redmaidio.

He then addressed an audience of more than 500 parents, students, staff and local residents in Redland Hall with a 45-minute talk all about his life, career, travels and interests.

Interview questions, posed by girls aged between 9 and 18, included how he deals with fear in the face of possible danger, what he believes is the greatest threat to the natural world today, and what advice he could give to anyone wanting to work with nature.

Steve said: “The audience was great and asked some really intelligent questions about the natural world which demonstrated how mindful they are about protecting our environment.”

Steve has written a number of books and has presented many TV programmes including Deadly 60, and more recently Down the Mighty River and Wild Alaska Live.

Speaking of his visit, Daisy in Year 13 said, “It was amazing to meet Steve. He reminded us of our responsibility to speak up for what we believe in, to help make the world a better place.”
