Patrick Aryee

Biologist - Wildlife & Factual Presenter

After studying and graduating in Cancer Biology at the University of Bristol, he decided to pursue a career in wildlife filmmaking and was an integral crew member of the BBC productions Madagascar and more recently Attenborough: 60 years in the Wild.

After catching the attention of several producers Patrick wrote and presented a series of web episodes to accompany the David Attenborough series ‘Madagascar’. A naturally light-hearted approach coupled with the ability to be authoritative and engaging, provides him with a distinct ability crossover between children’s and primetime factual programming.

Hugely enjoying the creativity of television Patrick was delighted to be asked to present BBC’s online natural history strand Zoo La La, a weekly show about weird and wonderful animal facts that launched the brand new BBC/YouTube platform, Earth Unplugged.

After this Patrick’s career was on clear trajectory as from there he presented Supersenses a specialist factual show for BBC2.

In each episode Patrick focused on key themes; sight, sound and scent across five continents, thus revealing the amazing ‘super senses’ of the animal world.

Seeing his passion and expertise, SKYONE invited him to be the sole host of a collection of Natural History programming for SKY ONE. This included Dogs: An Amazing Animal Family, Monkeys: An Amazing Animal Family on Sky1 and  Cats: An Amazing Animal Family.

Cats produced an RTS award win for the team and an RTS West Award for best Presenter for Patrick.

Cats was so successful with children it was also made into exclusive content for children when it  ‘Wild Files” series, again for SKY ONE.

Returning to the BBC Patrick then co-presented Natures’s Miracle Orphans, Amazing Animals and Super Small Animals all for BBC1 and Yellowstone for BBC2

Continuing his projects at SKYONE Patrick travelled the world filming shows in 4k such as Wild Animal Babies and Big Beasts, Last of the Giants.

Patrick is a regular contributor on The One Show, Countryfile and will be co-hosting Springwatch 2018.

Noticing his rich baritone voice he has been asked to narrate the National Geographic reversion specials of Planet Earth Live and  he also hosted Radio 4’s natural history production The Listeners.

Patrick’s scientific knowledge is vast and his personal interest in everything technical and natural history gives him the potential to be a unique and brilliant factual science & wildlife presenter. His mantra is… ‘Let’s get the lab into the field!’
