Catch country girl Kate talking about her love for nature and wildlife
Writer and broadcaster Kate Humble continues her current tour this week with appearances at The Royal Spa Centre in Leamington Spa on Thursday (31st May) and the Wyllyotts Theatre in Potters Bar on Friday (1st June).
Kate, who will be talking about her career as Tv presenter specialising in science, wildlife and rural affairs, is best known for a long line of programmes she has fronted for the BBC.
They include Springwatch and Autumn Watch, Wild Shepherdess, Yellowstone: Wildest Winter to Blazing Summer, Curious Creatures and Extreme Wives with Kate Humble. Her book Friend for Life: The Extraordinary Partnership between Humans & Dogs is out in paperback and of course there’s also the second series of Kate's popular programme Back to the Land which is currently screening on BBC2.
Together with her husband Ludo she lives in permanently muddy jeans on a smallholding in Wales.She had what she describes as a 'proper childhood' - building camps, racing snails, climbing trees, interspersed with trips to A&E to patch up things when they broke. At 18 she left school and home, and worked odd jobs for a year to fund a year travelling in Africa, which, she says, taught her far more than she would ever have learnt at university.
