Stephen Moss at Falmouth Poly

Stephen Moss is coming to Falmouth Poly
There are very few people from the world of television who are regarded as ‘real’ birders. Two stand out. Bill Oddie is one. The other is the producer of ‘Birding with Bill Oddie’ and ‘Bill Oddie goes Wild’, Stephen Moss.
The RSPB Cornwall Local Group are presenting ‘An Evening with Stephen Moss’ at Falmouth Poly on Thursday December 3rd and welcome members of CBWPS to this major indoor event.
Stephen is an award winning producer of Natural History programmes for television. He was the original producer for BBC’s ‘Springwatch’, a programme that has enthused millions of people about nature and conservation and worked on the programme from its first broadcast in 2005. Spin-offs from the programme now include ‘Autumnwatch’ and occasional specials such as ‘Winterwatch’ Other major works include ‘Big Cat Diary’ and ‘The Nature of Britain’ with Alan Titchmarsh. He also produced ‘Birds Britannia’ about the relationship between the British people and the birds that live around them.
A regular broadcaster on BBC Radio4, a columnist on birds and nature for ‘The Guardian’ and author of many books on birds and wildlife, Stephen uses all these mediums to enthuse as big an audience as possible about the wonderful nature of Britain and the wider world.
‘An Evening with Stephen Moss’ is at The Falmouth Poly, Church Street, Falmouth on Thursday, December 3rd at 7.30 pm. Booking is essential and tickets can be bought and reserved, to be picked up on the night, by ringing the Box Office on 01326 319461.
