With a lifelong passion for birds and the environment, Dr Rob Lambert will burst onto our TV screens this autumn in a new four-part series for the BBC, Birds Britannia.
Dr Lambert’s diverse expertise includes environmental history, environmental geography, ecology and tourism and the environment. He lectures in the Business School and the School of History. But his abiding passion, since the age of nine, has been his love of birds.
Rob is among a host of experts and pundits featured in the series, which follows our very British relationship with birds. Over four weeks the BBC 4 series — which starts at 9pm on Monday 1 November — will look at how this relationship has shaped our society, culture and the people of Britain.
His TV appearances also include last month’s BBC Four programme When Britain Went Wild which looked at the environmental revolution in the 1960s and 70s. And there’s more on the way with a new landmark television series about the making of the Scottish landscape.
