John
Aitchison

Friends of the Sound of Jura
John grew up by the coast and has been a naturalist for as long as he can remember. He studied Geography, worked for five years in the Film Unit of the RSPB, doing everything except camerawork, then set out to become a cameraman and return to the coast.

From their home in mid-Argyll, he and his wife Mary-Lou have produced a number of wildlife films, mostly for the BBC, including The Amber Time Machine, presented by David Attenborough, and BBC Scotland's Hebrides series, while also filming for series such as Planet Earth II, The Hunt, Springwatch and Big Cat Diary. They also make conservation programmes for SNH, SWT and others.

John writes and sometimes presents wildlife programmes on Radio 4.
