Multi-award winning wildlife photographer, cameraman and explorer, Doug Allan, will be bringing his Life Behind the Lens tour to the Platform in Morecambe on Tuesday, November 10.

Doug is one of the world’s most respected and experienced wildlife and natural history cameramen. His legendary expertise at both poles have made him a popular and charismatic speaker.

Over the last year, he has also been on several expeditions with the US-based Living Oceans Foundation.

Diving in some of the most remote and least visited places in the world, he has been filming scientists charting the decline of our precious coral reefs.

Doug (pictured) is well known for both his award-winning camera work and his appearances in BBC series such as The Blue Planet, Planet Earth, Life, Human Planet and Frozen Planet.

Often exciting, sometimes humorous, always revealing and refreshingly honest, his Life Behind the Lens tour offers unique personal insights into the challenges of filming animals in the wildest places on Earth, and the challenges they face for survival.

Doug’s presentation starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £17.50/£15.50 and are available online at www.lancaster.gov.uk/platform or from the Visitor Information Centres at the Platform in Morecambe and The Storey in Lancaster.

You can also buy tickets over the phone on 01524 582803.
