Real-life Stories: Steve Backshall gives you the story behind this incredible adventurer - from his early life growing up surrounded by animals on a small farm in Surrey, through his career exploring the world as a travel writer, to the daring TV presenter he is today. It focuses on Steve's love of animals and the natural world, and his passion for conservation. It also looks at how Steve has overcome injury and setbacks in his career to reach the top of his game.
