TV's nature expert Kate Humble tells about her wildlife adventures

By: stagedoorscribbler - November 20, 2017

Kate Humble

TV favourite Kate Humble will be touring with Clive Conway Productions discussing her life and career as a writer and broadcaster specialising in science, wildlife and rural affairs. 

Best know for BBC programmes like  Springwatch and Autumn Watch, she’s currently on screen with Extreme Wives with Kate Humble and the second series of her popular BBC programme Back to the Land will air in 2018.

 There have been many other TV shows including  Wild Shepherdess, Yellowstone: Wildest Winter to Blazing Summer and Curious Creatures.

Her latest book Friend for Life: The Extraordinary Partnership between Humans & Dogs is out in paperback. 

Kate, who lives with husband Ludo on a smallholding in Wales, says she spends her life in ‘permanently muddy jeans’.

She was born into this lifestyle enjoying what she describes as a 'proper childhood' - building camps, racing snails and 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. 

In 2007 she and Ludo moved to their smallholding in Wales and in 2011 set up 'Humble by Nature' a rural skills school on a working farm in the Wye Valley. They live with a variety of feathered and furry livestock and three dogs.
