Broadcaster Liz Bonnin has presented TV hit shows including BBC's Stargazing Live, Bang Goes the Theory, and Horizon. A lover of science and nature, Liz Bonnin makes an excellent facilitator or host for any event.
Biochemist and wild animal biologist Liz Bonnin is one of the UK’s best loved TV presenters, making a name for herself on the BBC’s Stargazing Live; Bang Goes the Theory and Egypt’s Lost Cities, as well as Top of the Pops and RI:SE.
Energetic and charismatic, she is the quintessential conference facilitator and awards host.
Liz had always been interested in biology and chemistry at school, and she went on to study Biochemistry at University.
After graduating, her career in TV kicked off on such shows as BBC One's Top of the Pops, before returning to her first love, science, and completing a Masters in Wild Animal Biology and Conservation. Liz's main interests during her studies were animal behaviour and intelligence and big cat conservation. She set up and carried out a research project on the diet of tigers in Bardia National Park, Nepal, which saw her come first in her class.
Her TV career has drawn heavily on her academic expertise. In the latest series of Horizon on BBC Two, she presents new scientific research raising hard questions about zoos. She has also been busy this year filming a brand new wildlife series for BBC One about animal migrations called Nature’s Epic Journeys, which broadcast in May 2016.
In 2015, Liz presented the hugely successful Big Blue Live series in Monterey, California for the BBC, and for PBS in the USA. Other TV credits include wildlife and animal behaviour programmes Super Smart Animals, Animals in Love, Animals through the Night: Sleepover at the Zoo, Operation Snow Tiger and Animal Odd Couples; science series Horizon, Stargazing Live and Bang Goes the Theory; documentaries Egypt's Lost Cities, Museum of Life and Science Friction; and ITV's popular Countrywise. Liz will also be appearing in the soon to be broadcast new series of Who-Do-You-Think-You-Are? on BBC One.
In addition to her TV work, Liz is a conference facilitator and awards host, and has MC'd various events, including most recently, the UK's National Science and Engineering Competition Awards and the Natural History Museum's prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards.
