Television shows produced by Andrew St Pierre White
Andrew’s first TV show appeared on Discovery Channel and was an aviation documentary called ‘The Death of Pelican-16’, the extraordinary story of professionalism, skill and pure good fortune that saved the lives of the 19 crew of an Avro Shackleton maritime patrol aircraft that crashed in the Western Sahara. Following that, South Africa TV called, and a 3-part documentary series called ‘Time Travel in the Kalahari’ was made, exploring the geographical mysteries of the fabled Kalahari Desert.
Since then, Andrew has earned the commonly-used name, ‘The David Attenborough of 4WD’. This is because his work evolved into exploring the most remote parts of the world in 4WD vehicles. His body of work included nine TV series shot in 19 countries on 4 continents. Andrew is now a world respected expedition filmmaker and storyteller.
He lives near Perth, Western Australia.
