Doug was the man behind the camera for some of the most extraordinary sequences ever filmed in the Antarctic. Before becoming a filmmaker, he spent seven years in Antarctica as a research diver, marine biologist, base commander and photographer for the British Antarctic Survey, and received both the Polar Medal and the Fuchs Medal for his science and support work. In 1984 started filming full-time, and in his 30-year career, his credits include: Frozen Planet, Ocean Giants, Human Planet, Life, Planet Earth, The Blue Planet and Life in the Freezer. He has won seven Emmys and four BAFTAs, and has twice won the underwater category in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year. He says: "Antarctica is a continent like no other. Her seals, birds, penguins and whales against a backdrop of bergs, glaciers and snowy peaks. With the ever changing light on the ice, it's simply one of the most breath-taking places on our planet. Come and be amazed, let me share my passion for the place, you'll understand what's kept drawing me back."
