DOUBLE BILL: Life Story | Hairy Nose
Sir David Attenborough takes us on the greatest of all adventures - the journey through life. For animals there is just one goal in life - to continue their bloodline in the form of offspring. They are an animal's legacy for the future. The story of their journey is about hope, facing danger, actions of breathtaking boldness, extraordinary behaviours and, ultimately, success against the odds. This is their Life Story.
A production by BBC, BBC Worldwide, Discovery, France TV & the Open University.
Wildscreen Panda Award nominations: Cinematography Award and Series Award
The screening of “Life Story” will be preceded by the showing of Hairy Nose, a two minute PSA from WildAid that imagines a world where toxic air pollution has become an accepted part of life in urban China and the resulting evolution of nostril hair.
A production by WildAid, McCann Shanghai, Gwantsi
Wildscreen Panda Award nomination: Campaign Award

As this screening is outdoors we recommend that visitors wear warm clothing and bring something to sit on as seating will not be provided. Bringing a picnic is also encouraged as there will be no food or drink vendors at the event.
