Discovering People: Michaela Strachan

Join Michaela Strachan as she talks with BBC journalist Martine Croxall about the people, places and creatures (large and small!) that have influenced her life and shaped her thoughts on the world.

Spanning 30 years, Michaela's presenting career has been shaped by an insatiable curiosity for animals and wild places, while her natural effervescence and dynamic style made her a favourite on live children's television, from The wide awake club to The really wild show. Michaela is now a natural choice to front wildlife documentaries on orangutans, elephants and penguins, but also for reports on the more challenging issues that affect our natural world ranging from the bushmeat trade to shark finning.

This promises to be an inspirational evening, as Michaela describes life in front of the camera on Orangutan rescue, Elephant diaries, Michaela's wild challenge, Countryfile and Springwatch, among others, and shares her personal journey with you.

Each year the Society invites three well-known public figures who we believe have interesting personal views on society, the environment, and the world in general to share their thoughts and experiences. Discovering People events are designed to be enlightening and entertaining interviews, in which we draw out how geography has helped shape our guests’ lives.

Past Discovering People events have included Ian Hislop, Frank Gardner, Paul Theroux, Chris Patten, Jan Morris, Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley, Don McCullin, Chris Bonington, Professor Richard Dawkins, John Simpson and David Attenborough.
