Chris is the se­ries pro­ducer of BBC Two’s Au­tum­n­watch. “It’s the hard­est sea­son to film,” he says, “and this year we’ve upped the ante: we’re com­ing live from New Eng­land with the most fa­mous au­tumn on Earth.” See p18 “I’m fas­ci­nated by wildlife that’s not where it’s ‘sup­posed’ to be,” says Richard. “When con­tro­versy erupted re­cently over the ur­ban kit­ti­wake colony on the Tyne in New­cas­tle, I had to get to the bot­tom of it.” See p32 “Sea tur­tles are barom­e­ters of the health of our oceans,” says science writer Margo. “Know­ing about their lives and habi­tats can in­form our ste­ward­ship of our shared en­vi­ron­ment.” See p70 Ecol­o­gist Helen en­joys delv­ing into the di­verse be­hav­iours of in­sects. “Watch­ing Britain’s largest so­cial in­sect, the hor­net, my cap­ti­va­tion was matched by the seem­ing non­cha­lance of these crea­tures,” she says.
