In 2019 Vianet presented and filmed Animal Babies: First Year on Earth on BBC Two. He has presented two films for BBC One’s ‘The One Show’ where he filmed British birds – Kingfishers in Yorkshire and Cuckoos in Somerset.

His first job in television was as an Assistant Cameraman working on Casualty for the BBC, where he learnt so much about lighting techniques. He then moved onto documentary cinema verité and then wildlife documentaries. His debut on-screen appearance was in 2016 on BBC Two’s The Natural World – My Congo where he explored and presented some of the natural wonders of his homelands.

“My first Natural World film, My Congo, was my biggest break in the industry, and it had such a warm and positive response from viewers – I still receive emails from people expressing how much they loved it. There were physical challenges as well, including a 10-hour rainforest trek to meet a local tribe as well as following a silverback and his gorilla group.”

“My Congo was an amazing project, but there were some challenges too. I’m quite a private person so revealing so much of myself about my background and my childhood to so many was quite difficult for me. My job often focuses on revealing other people’s stories but when the camera turned on me I felt quite exposed.”
