my name is Rob Pilley and I am a Zoologist and wildlife film maker for the BBC. I am one of the producers of the highly acclaimed BBC1 series entitled Spy in the Wild as well as an enthusiastic father of 2 children aged 11 and 8.
I have always raised my children out and about in countryside and have also waxed lyrical about my adventures whilst filming around the world. Recently I have started to film me and my children when we are out and about exploring and hunting wildlife using a a bespoke, multicamera rig that allows me to walk with my kids and look for and pick up animals without any encumbrance- allowing us to to film our real-life adventures without any use of a noisy camera crew in tow! Its just us in the wild and what we discover.
If you are interested in similar things for you or you and your children then please have a look and subscribe to our videos on our youtube channel/ facebook page, its entitled Robs Spy Adventures and features me and my kids plus some of my own recent adventures in Canada, the Amazon, Indonesia, Africa etc as well as in your own backyard!
What I am trying to do is embrace and reach out to a new generation of children who are largely living their lives through iPads, and so I am trying to create youtube and facebook content that will get their minds inspired and enthused, especially when they see me and my kids out and about in normal english countryside and the fun and adventures we get up to, all with minimal effort!
I look forward to any replies or requests for ideas or questions or even videos that you'd like me to go and shoot for you- remember it all has to be easily filmed live and uncut with no crew- just me and a subject and lets see what spontaneity and fun will happen!
Cheers for now

Can't say i'm a great believer in going about picking up wildlife and encouraging kids to do likewise myself but we are all different.

Call me suspicious, but do Robs Wild Adventures have anything to do with Rob Pilley BBC wildlife film producer?

The post say that they are one and the same - are you thinking that really they aren't connected?

Well we've had a few spammers on here lately & it didn't ring true to me, but I've never seen the TV series. Sorry if it's really him. People can say whoever they want to be & we've no proof.
Nice to hear from you, I can assure you its definitely me! Just put my name on google and see a pic of me and then look at my videos, its the same person!
If it is the same person he is doing a good job, but why is he spamming or is it the board doing its thing again?

Ok Sorry, I did that but couldn't really tell. We've had some spammers on lately that had links to gambling sites rather than wildlife. Full apologies!
CHOL:):) and with a list of threads, would make you wonder even more,I did reply to another post, wondering if he was having trouble posting and how he could have quickly deleted Doh!!!

It's not always the forum - at least one post yesterday and some different titles today. Attention seeking would be my bet but without working out how the system works before posting. He is just putting one in every group to up his business and hits. I bet he has never viewed anyone else's post and probably never will.

Sorry Noisette, at the time I replied to you I hadn't seen all of the self promoter's other posts.
