Number 45 – Megan McCubbin and Chris Packham
Chris Packhams daily lockdown show with stepdaughter Megan McCubbin was the surprise hit of Lockdown in the UK. It revealed much about nature as well as family relations. Packham began posting daily videos enthusing about spring unfurling around his home in the New Forest. Shortly before lockdown, he was called away for a final film commitment, but still wanted to post a daily video. He persuaded his stepdaughter, Megan McCubbin, 25, to step in. The Self-Isolating Bird Club was born, with Packham and McCubbin, who locked down together at his cottage, using two mobile phones and Skype to broadcast a live daily show online that celebrated our connection with the natural world. There seemed unquenchable thirst for their enthusiasm, their banter, and ordinary wildlife – from nesting blackbirds to badger skulls. Eight million people around the world tuned in over a month of broadcasts and it offered a lifeline to those humans feeling detached from the natural world.
