Editors Stuart Napier and Imogen Pollard worked together to create the Natural History Drama genre. A unique television experience that is based on the real life stories of the animals of the Serengeti. It combines real, wild animal behaviour with a dramatised presentation. Neither factual documentary nor scripted drama Serengeti is a cutting edge hybrid with a distinctive Editing style.
There are now three, six part episodes of the Serengeti strand completed. Produced and Directed by John Downer in collaboration with XIX Entertainment BBC Studios and Discovery in the USA. Now available on BBC iPlayer.
Art School then Film School at the London College of Printing, now the London College of Communication, was Imogen Pollard’s trajectory into the world of Editing. Working on Drama, Art’s Documentaries and Feature Films Imogen’s path led her to being a Sound Editor on Terry Gilliam’s “Twelve Monkeys”, Neil Jordan’s “Interview With A Vampire”, Mike Leigh's “Naked” and more. As Film went Digital Imogen made the transition to just plain Editing working on many Award Winning Documentaries. She currently coaxes out the characters and stories in the creature domain with Award Winning Natural History programmes including the three seasons of “Serengeti” for the BBC and Discovery.
