Explorer, Presenter, Writer

Will Millard is a writer, BBC presenter, and expedition leader. Born and brought up in the Fens, he is the BAFTA Cymru winning presenter of the BBC Two series 'Hunters of the South Seas' and 'My Year With The Tribe'. His critically acclaimed Penguin book 'The Old Man and the Sand Eel' follows his wild journey across Britain in pursuit of a fishing record and is out now in all good bookshops and online. When not fishing or filming in jungles, he's out making films about Welsh history, our waterways, our big fish, or probably just deep down a hole somewhere for BBC Four and BBC One Wales.
