This titles grab is from a factual wildlife programme made at Pebble Mill, and presented by Simon King. It probably dates from the 1990s.

Thanks to Ian Collins for making the grab available.

Adam Trotman added the following comment about Walk on the Wildside: ‘I was the assistant editor on it, Jonathan Birkett was the editor and Simon King was director, John King the Exec. It was BBC 2 I think, transmitted around tea time….I loved it as I got to do some editing as Jonathan had to dash as his wife had their first baby. By the way, Annie Jenkins did amazing graphics and animation for it well before CGI!’

  • yes I was the assistant wditor on it. Jonathan Burkett was the Editor and Simon King was director. John King the Exec….it was BBC 2 I think transmitted around tea time….I loved it as I got to do some editing as Jonathan had to dash as his wife had their first baby.

  • This was not a countryside walking programme. It was about wildlife, 6 episodes I think. As far as I remember each episode had a theme such as ‘waste’…(.the hippo waste sequence sticks in my memory…!)……Simon King presenting. I was dubbing editor on this series, it was a great challenge to create sounds for the mute wildlife footage. I remember having to create electric sound fx for geckos footsteps amongst others.
    David Lowe wrote the music and I visited his studio where he helped to create some excellent electronic sound fx. It would be nice to watch again…. I’ve still got the t shirt!!
