ON DEMAND: Riding the Waves – Natural History Production

  July 15, 2021

Our feature session Waves of Change explored how natural history programme-makers have harnessed the potential of technological innovation to capture iconic images of wild animals in their natural habitats and engage audiences with superlative visual storytelling.

From the liberating power of 5G, drones, and battery innovation to ever-more sophisticated AI algorithms to identify species and only film what and when the programme maker needs, transformative tech is helping capture the natural world – often from the most extreme locations on Earth – and bringing them into our living rooms.
