Polar bear attack by Gordon Buchanan

Polar Bear Attack By Gordon Buchanan

Buchanan grew up on the Isle of Mull. As a child Buchanan was a fan of David Attenborough's television shows and Survival, a nature show.
Buchanan's career in wildlife photography began when Nick Gordon, whose wife owned the restaurant Buchanan was working in, invited Buchanan to become Gordon's camera assistant for a project he was completing in Sierra Leone. Buchanan was there for almost a year before the project had to be abandoned due to the danger presented by the civil unrest in the country. Buchanan left school to join Nick Gordon on this trip and continued to work with him on his next projects in Venezuela and Brazil.
Buchanan began to work independently in 1995 and in time became known for his films of big cats and worked on Big Cat Diary. He also returned to his home on the Isle of Mull to film white tailed eagles. The resulting 2005 Natural World episode, "Eagle Island", received good reviews. (It was broadcast on 3 May 2009 as "Eagles of Mull" on Nature.) He also filmed the Natural World episode "Leopards of Yala".
Buchanan has filmed foxes for Springwatch and Autumnwatch in Glasgow, where he currently lives. Buchanan's coverage of grey seal pups was identified as one of the highlights of the show. He then returned for Springwatch 2008 completing a series on people with amazing wildlife stories including a one-off Springwatch special. In Autumnwatch 2008 he traveled to the Farne Islands to film grey seal pups again. In early 2009 Buchanan worked with the BBC, filming the Land of the Lost Volcano. Filming took place during the month of February 2009, around Papua New Guinea, and its islands. In December 2010, a documentary called The Bear Family and Me aired on the BBC. It showed the year which Buchanan spent with black bears in the U.S. state of Minnesota.
