BGT's ANEESHWAR KUNCHALA AND STEVE BACKSHALL TEAM UP FOR NEW BBC SERIES
BAFTA-winning BBC natural history presenter Steve Backshall makes his CBeebies debut in a brand new show Steve and Aneeshwar Go Wild.
The series follows Steve Backshall and Aneeshwar Kunchala as they meet amazing exotic animals from all around the world in zoos and safari parks. In each episode, the intrepid adventurers come face to face with two creatures and reveal the surprising and unusual ways in which they are connected in the wild.
Steve is widely known amongst younger audiences for his adrenaline-filled adventures on CBBC’s Deadly 60. Now, Steve is making his debut to the CBeebies family and taking its pre-school audience across the UK on a journey to discover all kinds of species from around the world.
Joining Steve Backshall on his adventure is young environmental enthusiast Aneeshwar Kunchala. Aneeshwar was a Britain’s Got Talent finalist in 2022, inspiring audiences with his poems about environmental conservation. At the age of eight, he is also already a Guinness World Record holder for youngest documentary maker, as well as a British Citizen Youth Award winner for his contributions to the natural world, climate change and sustainability in his local community.
Kate Morton, Head of Commissioning & Acquisitions 0-6, BBC Children’s, says: "BBC Children’s plays a crucial role in educating, informing and entertaining children across the UK, and Steve and Aneeshwar Go Wild is a shining example of our commitment to factual entertainment that does exactly that...
"Learning about the environment is more important than ever for young children, and it’s not just about the educational value, it’s about having great fun along the way! We’re looking forward to delighting and surprising young children and their families and leaving them feeling connected to the natural world and inspired by the wonderful species around us all."
Steve and Aneeshwar Go Wild will be available on the CBeebies channel and BBC iPlayer from Monday 14 August.
