Ready for an epic adventure? Wild Isles is a new BBC tv series, presented by Sir David Attenborough and co-produced by RSPB and WWF which explores the UK’s wild places like you’ve never seen before.

Produced by Silverback Films and filmed over three years, the BBC TV series is a unique collaboration between the RSPB, WWF and The Open University, bringing you closer to the extraordinary nature in the UK. Get ready for drama, beauty and spectacle.

Beccy Speight, CEO of RSPB, says:

“All of us at the RSPB have felt so privileged to contribute alongside our fellow co-producers WWF and The Open University. Wild Isles is a once-in-a-generation celebration of UK wildlife, but it’s also a stark warning of how much we have to lose. Our experts were among those who provided guiding science and advice, as well as offering our amazing reserves to film everything from dragonflies to golden eagles. We can’t wait to see what action is sparked by this milestone series – nature is in crisis, but we know that together we can save it.”

Episode one is set to feature impressive lords-and-ladies plants filmed right here in Bristol, as well as kingfishers on the rivers Frome and Avon. You can read more about this landmark series over at the RSPB website.

Tune into Wild Isles every Sunday evening from 12th March, 7pm on BBC one and iPlayer.
