Having started out presenting music and entertainment shows, Liz returned to her passion for science and nature, fronting Stargazing Live, Bang Goes the Theory, Horizon and documentaries including the award-winning Galapagos and the influential Drowning In Plastic.
Liz Bonnin is a presenter whose experience ranges from Top of the Pops to the popular science shows Bang Goes the Theory and Stargazing Live. She is now one of the BBC’s leading science and nature presenters.
Taking time out from her studies in biochemisty and biology to travel and perform in a band, Liz’s music led her to presenting an Irish music awards programme. That led to more television work, including a move to London to cover entertainment stories for Channel 4’s breakfast show RI:SE before joining Top of the Pops.
After completing studies for her Masters degree Liz then went back to presenting, this time to front BBC One’s Bang Goes The Theory for eight series. Since then Liz has worked on various science and natural history programmes, including BBC2’s Museum of Life, Horizon and Tomorrow’s World. Other projects have included the BAFTA award-winning Big Blue Live for BBC One, Stargazing Live, Springwatch, and the award-winning Galapagos, which saw Liz join a team of scientists to dive to a depth of 1km, the deepest anyone has gone in the islands’ waters. She also presented the landmark BBC 1 documentary Drowning In Plastic, which examined the global problem of plastic waste, and that contributed to the public debate on pollution and the health of the oceans.
