Chris has fronted a number of TV programmes since the beginning of his broadcasting career in 1986, including the BAFTA award-winning BBC series Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch. He is also a critically-acclaimed author and supporter of various wildlife and environmental charities, such as fronting many campaigns with the Bedfordshire-based RSPB charity.
