Media reviews

"Peter Scott was a huge influence on my childhood and I would avidly watch him on Look, a natural history programme on BBC Television – there was only one channel back then! Later on in life I had the good fortune both to meet and to interview him, and he remains, for me, a hero. His knowledge, his kindness to me and his generosity of spirit have remained an influence in my own sphere of natural history – the garden – and I cherish a small print of a Bewick swan that he signed and which hangs on my wall. To stand with him, inside that picture window at Slimbridge, as he painted a flight of Bewicks against a blue sky is a lasting memory of a great man. To meet one's heroes can sometimes be a let-down. That was most certainly not the case with Peter Scott."
– Alan Titchmarsh
