Ben Fogle will present the new series of Channel 5’s Animal Clinic
The University of Liverpool will take part in a second series of the Channel 5 programme ‘Animal Clinic’, presented by adventurer Ben Fogle.
In the new series, which will be broadcast in the Autumn, animal lover Ben Fogle will follow the lives of staff and students at the University’s state-of-the-art animal hospitals at Leahurst and the busy First Opinion Clinic on campus.
Ben’s love of animals is inspired by the work of his father, Bruce Fogle OBE, the celebrated author and veterinary surgeon with over 40 years experience in the field.
Professor Susan Dawson, Head of the School of Veterinary Science, said: “We are delighted that Ben Fogle will front the second series of Animal Clinic.
“It is a pleasure to open our doors again to Channel 5 to give an insight into our specialist hospitals and our skilled staff and share our clinical work and the fantastic learning experience we offer to our student vets.”
Channel 5’s Commissioning Editor, Ian Dunkley, said: “We are delighted to have Ben on board. His background and love of animals make him the natural choice to present the second series.”
The series follows the vets as they deal with medical emergencies, everyday injuries and mystery ailments, involving everything from domestic pets and farm animals to thoroughbred racehorses, as well as exotic animals at nearby Chester Zoo.
