What on Earth...?



Michael Jordan

Jeremy Cherfas (1986-7)


BBC2, 4 November 1982 to 8 January 1987


Quiz in which three wildlife experts (four in the final series) were asked questions about the natural world. Much use of clips from the BBC's vast natural history archive. Really more of a wildlife-discussion programme than a quiz, but no less interesting for that.


The wildlife experts included Johnny Morris, Lionel Kellaway and David Bellamy.

The main host, Mike Jordan, was famous at the time for co-presenting (with Su Ingle) the excellent children's wildlife programme 'Wildtrack', having replaced the previous host Tony Soper in the early-80s. Jordan also co-presented a mid-80s early-evening wildlife series 'Wild Britain'.
