NEW WILDLIFE SERIES ‘WORK ON THE WILD SIDE’ STARTS ON CHANNEL 4 TONIGHT

18th May 2020

New Channel 4 series meets some of the British wildlife heroes who have dedicated their lives to saving the world’s most endangered species. 

Weekdays 4pm starting Monday 18 May for 4 weeks.

Work on the Wild Side is a new twenty-part series which follows vets and volunteers who gave up their day jobs in the UK and moved to South Africa to rescue, rehabilitate and release some of the world’s most endangered animals.

Each hour-long programme transports us to South Africa, where we will see our vets and volunteers relocate giraffe, rescue a two week old hippo, become surrogate mums for orphaned monkeys, give mouth to mouth resuscitation to a cheetah and assist in the process of dehorning a rhino - all in a day’s work.

The series captures South Africa’s vibrancy and colour while shining a light on the critical conservation issues affecting these most vulnerable of species.

It’s an emotional rollercoaster as wildlife heroes let us into their lives and talk about their passion to save animals in danger of extinction, from penguins and sharks in the Western Cape to the ‘Big Five’ in the Northern Plains.

The series features Harriet Nimmo (56) from Croydon and her husband Mike Kendrick have travelled the world, but it was always Africa that touched their hearts.  In 2011 they finally made the move, packing up their successful UK careers and moving to South Africa where they’ve now built a house in the bush and have giraffe, warthogs, porcupines and mongooses drinking out of their bird bath.  Harriet works with Elephants Alive whose mission is to ensure the survival of elephants and their habitats promoting harmonious coexistence between elephants and people. Harriet was previously CEO of Wildscreen.

With production units working across dozens of different locations, the series was shot on location in South Africa by Waddell Media, a leading producer of factual, lifestyle and entertainment programming for the UK, Irish and international markets, based in Holywood, Co Down, Northern Ireland.
