British wildlife filmmaker and television producer Jacinth Latta has a passion for telling engaging stories about the natural world. After graduating in 1991 from the University of Bristol with a BSc (Hons) in zoology, she pursued an MA in media production at Bournemouth University. It was then that she found her calling in nature and took her first job at Survival Anglia as a researcher and assistant producer on two Arctic films.
Over the next 20 years, she was taken around the globe as a producer, director and writer to capture some of the world’s most fascinating animals. And she has helped create programs for numerous broadcasting outlets, including Channels 4 and 5, ITV, Animal Planet, the Discovery and Smithsonian Channels, Blue Ant Media, and National Geographic. Most recently, she teamed up with BBC World and BBC’s Natural History Unit as an event producer for Sir David Attenborough’s appearance at the 2019 Glastonbury Festival.
