The Oxford and Cambridge Society of the UAE invites alumni to join them for a lecture by guest speaker Anthony Geffen on his experience as a television producer and insights from his work with David Attenborough.

Anthony will speak about his experiences as a television producer, including insights from his 11 productions with David Attenborough.

He will also discuss the pioneering new storytelling techniques which have resulted in productions including triple Emmy-winning series 'First Life', the acclaimed special 'David Attenborough meets President Obama' and, most recently, 'David Attenborough's Great Barrier Reef' television series and virtual reality which was awarded the first ever British Academy Award for virtual reality storytelling.
