7/3 - Nature, Nurture

"In the theatre of war, the theatre of wildlife kept me alive."

Ex-soldier Craig Jones escaped a brutal father and found solace in the natural world.

Now a distinguished wildlife photographer and conservationist, the aftermath of his traumatic childhood and military training informs his approach.

In this candid interview with Olly, he explains how his kinship with wild creatures has helped him survive, thrive and start afresh.


Elsewhere, in this week's Zeitgeist, Ollie Peart uncovers the secret world of 'millenialingo', explains why Basil Fawlty might feel at home in the world of self-driving cars, and reveals the results of his challenge to make £150 in one week of matched betting
