Host: David Suzuki

Dr. Suzuki is an award-winning scientist, environmentalist and broadcaster. His television appearances, explaining the complexities of the natural sciences in a compelling, easily understood way, have consistently received high acclaim for over 30 years. He is the only network television science host who was actually a practising scientist.

His work on THE NATURE OF THINGS has won him three Gemini Awards and an ACTRA Award as Best Host. He was also host of the eight-part Planet For The Taking, also on CBC-TV. His TV series for BBC and PBS, The Secret of Life, was internationally praised, as was his five-part series The Brain, on the U.S. Discovery Channel.

He originated the popular CBC Radio series Quirks and Quarks in 1974 and hosted it until 1979. In 1989, he hosted the five-part radio series It's A Matter of Survival. His most recent radio endeavour was the eight-part series, From Naked Ape to Superspecies, broadcast on CBC Radio, and released in book form by Stoddart.
