A Year In The Wild.


A portrait of the ancient landscapes and spectacular wildlife of three of Britain's most inspiring areas of natural beauty. The Cairngorms, Snowdonia and The New Forest seen through the eyes of the people who know it best.

Ep1 - Snowdonia.
Snowdonia is Wales' most dramatic wild place, and one of the most beautiful and best loved in the whole of Britain. It's a land of extinct volcanoes surrounded by the Irish Sea, a spellbinding landscape whose peaks are some of the most ancient on the planet and whose valleys are a refuge for rare and fascinating wildlife including otters, hen harriers and peregrine falcons. This film follows a farmer, a National Park warden, a climber and a poet throughout the year and, through their intimate knowledge of Snowdonia, explores the nature of wilderness in modern Britain.

Ep2 - The New Forest.
The New Forest is a fragment of the ancient wild wood that once stretched the length and breadth of Europe - it is also one of Britain's newest National Parks. This enchanted forest is like no other: pigs and ponies roam beneath mighty oaks and beeches, and pockets of heath land shelter some of the rarest creatures in Britain - including Dartford warblers, hobbies and sand lizards. People live here too - with a unique lifestyle that has survived since medieval times. This film follows a forest keeper, a coppicer, a storyteller and a farmer as the seasons change, revealing the secrets of an exquisite forest that's as old as England.

Ep3 - The Cairngorms.
The Cairngorms is Britain's largest and wildest National Park. A land of Arctic extremes in the heart of the Scottish highlands. Its granite mountains and ancient pine forests are home to some of our rarest and most spectacular animals, including golden eagles, ptarmigan, capercaillie, red deer and crested tits. This lyrical and thought-provoking film reveals the inner secrets of this wild landscape over a year through the eyes of individuals who know and love the Cairngorms: a mountain guide, an artist, a salmon ghillie, a gamekeeper and a nature writer.
