Wild Britain With Ray Mears.
Ray Mears is about to take viewers of Eden and Eden HD on an incredible, never before seen eye-opening journey of British wildlife, filmed in high definition at a series of beautiful locations around the UK.
Wild Britain With Ray Mears will see the bushcraft and survival expert uncover some of the UK’s finest habitats and rejoice in our fascinating wildlife, showing viewers how they can find their own relationship with the wild, even in places close to their homes.
Exclusive additional footage from the series, not previously seen on UK television, will be shown on the channels from the start of April, giving viewers a rare chance to get even closer to British wildlife, courtesy of Ray Mears.
Each episode of the series is themed around a different habitat: Deciduous Woodland, Heathland, Meadows and Farmland, Wetlands, Shingle Shore and Moorland.
Immersing himself in nature, Ray Mears reveals vital links between the plant, animal and insect worlds, as well as the role of man in the evolution of our ever-changing landscape. He also examines how the wild animals and plants of our countryside reflect five millennia of human history.
His passion and knowledge encourage viewers to discover a hidden world, which lies just beyond their doorstep as he explores each location and delves into the heart of each natural habitat. Using his expert field craft and tracking skills, he seeks out the species which best define each location as the cameras capture incredible wildlife behaviour.
The six part series, which is a co-production with ITV, is a celebration of Britain’s habitats, their wildlife and their heritage, delivered with Ray Mears’ unbridled passion and flawless natural history photography.
Take a Microscopic look at Wild Britain With Ray Mears, with additional exclusive content, new to Eden and Eden HD, weeknights at 8pm from Monday 4 April.
