Saturday 9 September 2017

Live Nation and BBC Worldwide are proud to announce the first live tour to Australia for award-winning UK TV science presenter and New York Times bestselling author Dr Michael Mosley.

In his live show, Michael Mosley, the man behind the iconic 5:2 Diet, will take you on a journey exploring fascinating health myths and facts with exciting experiments and an interactive Q&A.

With special guest host Julia Zemiro, this promises to be both a fun and enlightening evening with one of the world’s most foremost health authors and science presenters. The live show presents a compelling snapshot of Michael Mosley – the nature of his enquiry, his discoveries about the world we live in and indeed us.

Winner of EMMY and BAFTA awards for his Horizon documentary, Michael has written three international best sellers: The Fast Diet (also known as the 5:2 Diet); Fast Exercise; and The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet. His books have sold in more than 42 countries.

Michael’s latest groundbreaking book, The Clever Guts Diet, provides scientifically proven ways to control your appetite and boost your mood and will be released in Australia in June.

Michael has also made many television series’ for BBC One, Two, Three and Four including: Inside the Human Body; The Young Ones; The Story of Science; Trust Me, I’m a Doctor; Pain, Pus and Poison: The Search for Modern Medicines; Truth About Exercise; and Eat, Fast and Live Longer. His latest television series, Meet the Humans, screens on SBS in Australia late in 2017.

Michael studied politics, philosophy and economics at Oxford University. He worked as a banker in London for two years before switching careers to study medical psychology at the Royal Free Hospital Medical School in London.

After his training in medicine he again diverted his career by moving into television production at the BBC in 1985. In 1995 he was named Medical Journalist of the Year by the British Medical Association.

As an executive producer Michael was responsible for some of the most successful international science and history documentaries of the past decade, including Supervolcano, Krakatoa, Pompeii – the Last Day, Superhuman and The Human Face with John Cleese in 2001.
