Participation in the Media

I have recently been involved with two British TV documentaries

Inside Nature’s Giants – Jungle Special

Inside Nature's GiantsThis hour long programme was broadcast by Channel 4 in 2012. It was all filmed on location in the jungle of Borneo. My role was to dissect large insects and to discuss their role in the jungle habitat dominated by enormous trees.
