Jonnie Hughes was a science lecturer and journalist before joining the BBC Natural History Unit in 2002 to make documentaries.  In the last eighteen years, working at both the BBC and independent production companies, he has produced and directed science and natural history films for the BBC, Discovery, National Geographic and Netflix.  In 2009, Jonnie took a sabbatical from filmmaking to write a popular science book, On the Origin of Tepees, which explored the subject of cultural evolution.  In 2012, he joined Silverback Films in Bristol, UK, to work as producer/director on the BAFTA award-winning BBC series The Hunt (2015) and then as Supervising Producer attached to Netflix’s Emmy award-winning Our Planet (2019).  His collaboration with Sir David Attenborough on both these projects led to his engagement as producer/director on David Attenborough A Life on Our Planet.
