Dr John Sparks

One of the longest serving producers at the BBC Natural History Unit (NHU) John Sparks spent 35 years with the Corporation, running the Unit for several years. John has had a life-long passion for birds and after gaining his degree in zoology went on to study bird behaviour for his PhD.

Although no longer in the film business, John still enjoys communicating his interests to others and has talks illustrated with his own photos to prepare for local people and for passengers on small expedition ships, mostly in Arctic waters.
