Zoë narrates stunning wildlife series, My Family and the Galapagos, on Channel 4

29 July 2018 20:22

Over the next few weeks, UK fans can hear Zoë narrating My Family and the Galapagos, a new wildlife documentary series on Channel 4. The programme follows marine biologist Monty Halls, his wife and children as they explore (as Zoë declared in the first episode) ‘the most extraordinary place on earth, where spectacular animals live side-by-side with people’.

As the Halls discover during their three-month expedition, however, there’s trouble in paradise. Channel 4 explains in its My Family and the Galapagos press release that ‘with the human population expanding, plastic waste infesting seas and washing up on shores, invasive species and illegal fishing threatening the islands more than ever before’, a delicate ecosystem is being put under increasing pressure.

Monty Halls (who’s president of charity the Galapagos Conservation Trust) and his family aim to find out what we can all do to protect this fabulous, fragile part of the world, which boasts many species found nowhere else.

You can catch up with episode one now; Channel 4 will broadcast episodes two and three on 4 August and 11 August at 8pm.

Watching My Family and the Galapagos reminds me of an episode from the fourth series of sitcom My Family, called ‘Deliverance’. Perhaps you remember it too – in a series of flashbacks to the 1970s, Zoe's Susan and husband Ben (played by Robert Lindsay) relive the night eldest child Nick was born. When the expectant couple arrive at the hospital, Susan has second thoughts about becoming a parent... What if she ends up stuck at home changing nappies instead of exploring the world?!

Perhaps the Harpers should've taken a leaf out of the Halls' book and taken the kids on a once-in-a-lifetime trip!
