BBC Natural History series needs you

Published: 22 September 2008

Do you think you have what it takes to make the next Planet Earth?

BBC One is looking for nine people to take part in the experience of a lifetime. Encountering extraordinary animals in amazing locations and testing yourself to the limit, this series will culminate with one exceptional individual securing a years placement at the BBC's award winning, world famous Natural History Unit.

Would your holiday of a lifetime involve seeing one of the big five in their natural habitat? Maybe your weekends are spent volunteering at your local animal sanctuary? Are your cupboards crammed full of wildlife videos? Do you get up at dawn to catch a song from the rare bittern?

Whatever your age and background, as long as you can illustrate your passion for the natural world we want to hear from you.

To apply, please email your name to and an application form will be emailed to you.

Deadline for applications 26/11/08.

Successful candidates may spend up to ten weeks away from home in spring 2009.
