The filmmaker will be stopping off in Swindon on 11 April. 

His show will take place at the Wyvern Theatre, and will start at 7.30pm. 

A spokesperson for Gordon Buchanan said: "One of the most prominent wildlife presenters and filmmakers working today, Gordon’s journey is a remarkable story to tell.

"Having produced some of the most popular wildlife programmes on the BBC, we have been able to see his passion for the animal kingdom and the unique ability he has for presenting such hidden animal worlds to an audience."

Gordon current tour will be taking a look back at 30 years of his career, working both behind and in front of the camera. Organisers say thsis will be a rare opportunity to discover what has driven his career and what are his most favourite wildlife encounters.
