Synopsis:
Join David Bellamy's breathtaking journey across Britain's greatest wilderness areas - and see for yourself why we must protect them. In three award-winning programmes David explores from ground and air the natural environments of Britain's premier wilderness landscapes: the Peak District, our first National Park; the dramatic highlands and lowlands of Scotland, one of the world's greatest wilderness treasures: and the North Pennines, the wild 'backbone' of Britain.
In his enthusiastic company we enter a wonderful world of wild heather and open water, high mountain, ancient settlement and deep forest with here and there the odd bit of bog and marsh! Stories abound too of some of the other adventurous spirits that have gone and go before: stories of old mole catchers and reed cutters, ghosts and wolves; of lost warriors and battlegrounds, blood drinking ravens and stone worshipping priests; and a glorious company of singers and heroes - Wordsworth and Brooke, King Arthur, Wallace and Montrose. Along the way David meets some of the people responsible for managing our remaining wilderness areas and the resources we reap from them, and some of those who still make their livelihood within them. And as might be expected from the world's best loved eco-warrior, there is a plea too for the wise management of these precious landscapes. For these are, without doubt, our greatest national treasures.
