The life of the travelling vet, whose stories will shock and inspire, on a voyage to places where animal welfare is low.
Luke Gamble's Vet Adventures (10 x 52 minutes)
Journeying from the lush open plains of the African Serengeti to the tropical rainforests in East Asia, the 'world wild vet' take viewers on a voyage across the world as the English vet ventures to places where animal welfare is low on the agenda and vets are often non-existent.
A non-stop roller coaster ride, this fascinating high definition documentary series is packed with drama and aspirational story lines. Travelling for up to two weeks at a time, Luke provides emergency relief in disaster areas and helps animal shelters, charities and the local populace with their livestock, pets and exotic creatures such as gorillas, dolphins and camels.
While facing the challenge of saving as many animals as possible along the way, Luke has to juggle the stresses of long hours, little sleep and life on the road, as well as dealing with serious moral dilemmas. Luke’s veterinary knowledge is tested when he has to decide whether he should put down a severely sick donkey and take someone’s potential livelihood away or keep the animal suffering so its owner can make a living.
On top of that, the village vet from Dorset has to immerse himself into different cultures, traditions and local delicacies and we witness how well his no-nonsense approach goes down with the locals.
