Bruce Parry was now one of the leading lights of the new breed of TV adventurers.
A new adventure was soon to follow when Bruce spent almost eight months filming in the Amazon and in 2009 he was back on our screens with 'Amazon' the series. Ratings were climbing and people just couldn't get enough of Bruce Parry.
In 2010 he journeyed North to Siberia, Canada, Alaska and Greenland to film a series covering changes in climate and how it was affecting the people, their culture and the environment. A book was also written and released to accompany the series which became a best seller.
Bruce Parry lives by the Royal Marines PTI philosophy of flat out or perfectly still! whereby he is only happy in the tranquility of the wilderness or the mayhem of a London club.
