The award-winning wildlife film director and producer James Brickell will deliver a keynote speech at the Central Qualifications (CQ) Graduation and Awards Ceremony on Saturday, 9 June.

A winner of three BAFTAs and an EMMY, James’ wildlife filmmaking career spans over 20 years. He has spent most of that time with the world famous BBC Natural History Unit, where he has been responsible for some genuine ‘world-firsts’ in wildlife filmmaking.

His television career to date includes The Really Wild Show, Big Cat Diary, Wildlife on One, Planet Earth II and Life in Cold Blood. After a year of living and filming on location in Australia, James also produced Great Barrier Reef with TV presenter Monty Halls.

Most recently, James led the digital team behind the groundbreaking documentary Blue Planet II. This included producing state-of-the-art VR projects and targeted films on the BBC Earth social media platforms, bringing the underwater world to millions of people worldwide.

Veterinary nursing students and their families from across the UK are set to gather in London for the CQ graduation ceremony. Taking place at Central Hall, Westminster, the event will also see the winners of the 2018 Veterinary Nursing Educator of the Year Awards collect their prizes.

The Veterinary Nursing Educator of the Year Awards pay tribute to the hard work and dedication of staff who support students studying for veterinary nursing qualifications. Last year’s joint winners were Kirsty Gwynne of Abbeydale Vetlink Veterinary Training Ltd and Karen Saddleton, from Central College of Animal Studies.
