In this nineteenth episode of the season of the Her Spirit podcast BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin and BBC Triathlon presenter Annie Emmerson talk to TV presenter Julia Bradbury.
Credited with revamping Sunday night primetime television on BBC One’s Countryfile, and dubbed “Lady of the Lakes” following her many walking series, Julia Bradbury is one of the small screen’s most popular and versatile presenters.
Outside her television life and following her dedication to environmental causes, she is an ambassador for Keep Britain Tidy, The National Trust and a champion for Ordnance Survey. Julia is also proud to be the first female President of The Camping and Caravanning Club. Following her involvement with the BBC programme Famous, Rich and Homeless, she has now become a staunch supporter of the Big Issue and the plight of homelessness.
She talks about her love of the outdoors, walking and her passion for sustainable tourism. She champions the need to reduce plastic and raising the awareness of plastic pollution.
As a mum of three she shares the importance of being active and how walking is a special thing, most of us have a special memory, or sense of play.
Julia is co-founder of The Outdoor Guide with her sister Gina, a free online resource for all things connected to the outdoors. www.theoutdoorguide.co.uk
