About Gordon Buchanan

Gordon Buchanan is a spellbinding storyteller who can captivate an audience with his fund of wild and wonderful tales about the natural world, while at the same time educating and informing on topical issues.


Wildlife cameraman Gordon has spent the last seventeen years filming the wild, the weird and the wonderful animals that we share the planet with. Travelling to some of the most remote areas he captures images that inspire the wonder and awe of the natural world.  With a reputation for dangerous and tough assignments, Gordon spends much of the year in the wildest and most extreme parts of the world filming and presenting some of the BBC’s top Wildlife programmes. His free time is spent at home with his wife Wendy and two children Lola and Harris.

Gordons in front of the lens

In addition to his work behind the camera Gordon has made successful forays into working in front of the lens. First in ‘Leopard Hunters’, Gordon proved to be a very competent and natural presenter. His relaxed and informal manner was put to good use in two series for the BBC’s ‘Wild’ strand. ‘Wild Scotland’ and ‘Wild West Country’ were hugely popular with the BBC2 audience, and have provided an interesting diversion to Gordon’s main love of filming. At the start of 2004 Gordon, with his wife and new daughter Lola, returned to the Isle of Mull to commence a 50 minute film about the wildlife on and around his native island.

Gordon received a Royal Television Society Award for his presenting work on The Bear Family and Me.

Gordon’s other recent productions include Equator from the Air, Life in Polar Bear Town and the highly acclaimed Tribes, Predators and Me series, all broadcast on BBC Two and Life in the Snow and Super Cute Animals all for BBC One.

Gordon is a Patron for Environmental Justice Foundation. In 2019 Gordon was awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the Royal Scottish Geographical Society in recognition of services to the Society and to the wider discipline of geography and was awarded with an MBE in the New Year Honours for services to charity and wildlife conservation.

Furthermore, in 2020, Buchanan was awarded MBE in the New Year Honours for Services to Charity and Wildlife Conservation.
