An Irishman Abroad interview

Liz Bonnin's journey which brought her from France to Dublin to tracking wild cats in Nepal is a fascinating one. This week Liz sat down for a conversation with Jarlath at the BAFTA headquarters in London to discuss her story and sudden departure from mainstream television in favour of her first love, science.

Liz talks about how academia gave her a sense of control in her hectic lifestyle as an entertainment presenter, completing her Masters degree before embarking on a career as a specialist factual presenter for the BBC which has brought her all over the world. From discussions of her life-changing experiences with tigers to her struggles campaigning for the protection of endangered animals to the importance of valuing hard work and persistence, this interview truly has it all.
