Wildlife filmmaker Gordon Buchanan to share stories of thrilling encounters with the untamed natural world

Award-winning wildlife photographer and filmmaker Gordon Buchanan will hit the road in 2025 for his biggest ever live tour.

With a life dedicated to exploring the natural world, Mr Buchanan will visit 35 venues across the UK including a date at London’s Blackheath Halls on March 1.

Lions and Tigers and Bears with Gordon Buchanan will see him recount tales from his thrilling encounters with some of nature’s most fascinating animals.

Mr Buchanan said: “Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my! It could be a line straight from The Wizard of Oz but there’s no fiction here, just amazing facts as I get the chance to bring to life the amazing adventures I’ve had the absolute privilege to experience.

“Bears and big cats are the undisputed icons of the animal kingdom and I’ve spent a lifetime capturing them on film.”

From pandas in China to orphaned grizzlies in Russia, from high-altitude tigers in the Himalayas to jaguars in the depths of the Amazon, Mr Buchanan has met incredible creatures across the globe in their natural habitats.

He said: “There has been mud, sweat and tears, tender moments and terrifying encounters and I can’t wait to meet more animal lovers and tell more tales as I hit the road again.”

Hailed as Scotland’s own David Attenborough, Mr Buchanan has traveled with a single mission in mind to capture the majestic bears and big cats on film and reveal their secrets to a global audience.

His new tour in 2025 will feature his adventures with pandas, grizzlies, tigers, jaguars and more.

Growing up on the Isle Of Mull, Mr Buchanan began his career in filmmaking in 1989 as assistant to the acclaimed survival cameraman Nick Gordon – traveling to Sierra Leone to document animals in the Gola Rainforest.

He went on to work on the Big Cat Diary series as well as the long-running expedition series Lost Land Of The… for the BBC.

The Family & Me documentaries began in 2010 when Mr Buchanan featured alongside Minnesota black bears.

Most recently he has been on screens as part of the presenting team on Our Changing Plant, a seven-year diary charting the fight to save the planet’s ecosystems.
