Dr Robert Lambert features in new landmark BBC1 wildlife series which urges us all to protect British nature

Dr Rob Lambert, an environmental historian in the Department of History, featured in a major new wildlife series on BBC1 this August called Britain’s Big Wildlife Revival.

Rob was an expert in the first programme, ‘Woodlands’, in this six-part ecosystem-based series, broadcast on Sunday 18 August at 5.35pm (and which attracted an audience of 2.7m). The next in the series will air this Sunday 25 August.

Filmed in the Elan Valley in central Wales at Gigrin Farm, Rob and the series presenter, Ellie Harrison, best known to viewers from BBC Countryfile, were captured talking about red kite history in Britain, as 300 red kites soared overhead! A truly memorable sequence.

The Series Producer, Stephen Moss, is a Special Professor at the University of Nottingham. From 16-18 August, Rob and Stephen have also been performing to audiences of 500+ on the main events stage at the 25th annual British Birdwatching Fair at Rutland Water, alongside other wildlife TV personalities such as Nick Baker, Simon King, Jonathan Scott, Johnny Kingdom, David Lindo, Charlie Hamilton-James, Bill Oddie and Dominic Couzens.
