Mike Salisbury’s fascination with the natural world developed from an early age. Turning down the offer of a permanent contract with the LED, Mike opted to follow his passion for documentaries and worked on BBC’s Horizon for 3 years. He has since produced many of BBC’s most successful wildlife programs including The Discovery of Animal Behavior & Kingdom of the Ice Bear and was also the Series Editor of The Natural World in the early 1990s, focusing on programs that tackled conservation issues. Mike has been entrusted with some of BBC’s most innovative and successful series including Private Life of Plants, Life of Mammals and Life in the Undergrowth. In 2006, Mike Salisbury received the Panda Award for Outstanding Achievement at Wildscreen and an OBE for services to broadcasting in 2007.
