Synopsis:
Britain's wildlife can be secretive, so often goes unnoticed. This series reveals the hidden lives of both the familiar and the more unusual animals with which we share our island home.

Mountains
Only the hardiest of beasts survive in Britain's mountains and uplands, including the golden eagle and its prey the mountain hare, plus 400,000 red deer, the flamboyant black grouse, and sheep who have grazed for centuries.
Forests
Britain's forests contain majestic trees, some of them thousands of years old. Behind the leafy veil, there are booming populations of previously rare wild boar and goshawks.
Coasts
From sandy beaches to soaring cliffs, Britain's coastlines are one of nature's wildest habitats, where hardy creatures are battling to survive.
Rivers
Britain has plenty of rain...and as a result is blessed with abundant rivers. In fact over six thousand crisscross our land. The animals that live in them and on their banks often go unnoticed. But it takes skill and endurance to survive these turbulent worlds.
Water Worlds
From our Scottish lochs and golden reed beds to southern swamps and the ponds of our back gardens, Britain's "Water Worlds" are wild corners we rarely explore - but they are the most biodiverse places in Britain.
Islands
Only around a hundred of Britain's 6,000 islands are inhabited by people, leaving the rest to extraordinary animals that have battled the elements and made these wild places their own.
Countryside
The British countryside is a national treasure - and it's right on our doorstep. It may appear timeless, but it's changed more in the last hundred years than in the previous two thousand. And it's the stage for plenty of wild activity - night and day.
Cities
Britain's towns and cities are our fastest growing landscape, now covering around 7% of the country. Wildlife might seem unwelcome, but our concrete jungles are a land of opportunity.

Sheer Excellence - Wild Britain review by EMJAY

Spoiler Alert
31/12/2018

Having watched many, many recordings of this nature (no pun intended) I rate this one as one of the very best. The quality of the picture and the wonderful voice of Hugh Bonneville had me riveted to my seat for the 3 hours on each disc. The only comment I will make is that it may not be suitable for younger viewers because of the amount of breeding that is shewn in graphical content. Okay, it might be over in a second with some of the animals but it could still raise some very awkward questions. Outside of that it is a very informative production that I would recommend to all. A treat to watch.
