Thanks Tegan I'd love to hear him speak.

We are planning to do a cruise up the Norwegian coast next year and may be lucky enough to see the Aurora. I have heard the lights called 'the merry dancers'. The sunsets off the west coast of Scotland are stunning but they don't have the movement of the Northern Lights.

Lovely program. I love snow, the peace and quiet. It was a delight

I don't know if he's touring around. We just heard about it at Attenborough Nature reserve and snapped up a couple of tickets because they were selling out fast. It's at quite a small venue in Beeston. As with Chris Packham a few years ago, these people give these talks to do everything they can to make people care about the world around them; quite humbling, really.

Is Gordon Buchanan's talk happening somewhere in the North East,please Tegan ?

Yes a lovely programme, bit like a short sleigh ride broadcast over Christmas, which was glorious.

Going to a talk he's giving next month; really looking forward to it!!

Oh me too. I was engrossed in this programme. He went from being absolutely terrified of the reindeer to sheer respect. I love all Gordon's programmes. The wolves one is spectacular.wink

We have seen the Northern Lights but personally feel that a beautiful British sunset is far more spectacular.

It is my dream to see the northern lights! It was a lovely programme.

Watched this yesterday and it was so beautiful, truly a winterwonderland.I admired the way Gordon eventually loved his reindeer and was so thrilled for him when the Northern Lights put on a display in all their glory. How I would love to go there for Christmas it must be magical!!!
