Giraffes: Africa's Gentle Giants

Giraffes: Africa’s Gentle Giants – Narrated by David Attenborough

Tom first met Dr Julian Fennessey when he was beginning his giraffe research, when Julian reported back that giraffe numbers were crashing across the continent we decided to see if we could make a film.


The BBC and PBS supported us and we shot across Uganda, Namibia, South Africa and Ethiopia to paint a picture of the astonishing discoveries about giraffe biology and behaviour, and to show the brave efforts being made to save these gentle giants. The film raised awareness of this silent extinction and was even screened to the European Parliament.
