about

''Gavin Thurston''s book has all sorts of strengths. His camera has captured some of the most eye-catching images of the natural world ever seen on television. And he can write. He brings the process home to us in a style that is modest, down to earth and full of humour. This is one of the best books about filming I''ve ever read.'' MICHAEL PALIN

''Gavin''s book is extraordinary: his easy prose and gasp-making encounters make for a gripping and very funny read. It''s a rollercoaster ride with a complete professional. I loved it.'' JOANNA LUMLEY

''[Gavin is] a great cameraman with infinite patience, but also a writer with great powers of observation and expression. Brilliant!'' ALAN TITCHMARSH
