The man behind The Animal Roadshow, is zoologist James McKay. With over 30 years of practical teaching experience at all levels, James has been known to thousands as "THE ANIMAL MAN" since the 1970s, thanks to innumerable appearances in schools, and on countless television programmes, including:
Animal Crazy, BBC Radio 1, 2, and 4, BBC TV News, BBC Watchdog, Blue Peter, Calendar, Central News, GMTV, Good Morning Britain, Heart of the Country, How2, It's A Vet's Life, BBC Look North, Midlands Today, Motormouth, News at Ten, Sky News, The Time The Place, The Wide Awake Club, This Morning, Tracks, TVam, Wacaday, What's Up Doc?, Yorkshire Television
to mention just a few!
If you or your pupils have seen the "Harry Potter" films, then you will have seen some of James' owls, now stars in their own right.
A regular contributor to countless TV and radio programmes, newspapers and magazines, James is the author of many books on animals and animal-related subjects. A scientific fellow of the Zoological Society of London, James' broadcasting, writing and work in general have established his reputation as an internationally recognised authority on many animal species and animal-related subjects – a true "ANIMAL MAN".
It is James' belief that learning is a multi-sensory activity and should be an enjoyable experience, and James not only knows his subject, but also has the rare talent of being able to communicate the topic with enthusiasm and zeal, to audiences of all ages and levels.
