UK pubcaster BBC One has commissioned a new series fronted by Sir David Attenborough that explores the wildlife of Great Britain and Ireland.

Produced by Silverback Films, Wild Isles (w/t) uses the very latest technology to capture dramatic new behaviour – from battling butterflies to hunting sea eagles and killer whales – revealing a previously unseen wild side of the British Isles.

The 5×60’ series is coproduced by The Open University, the RSPB and the WWF, and is being filmed over the course of three years.

Wild Isles will commence with an introductory episode explaining why Britain and Ireland are globally important for nature, while the remaining four episodes will celebrate the isles’ four key habitats – woodlands, grasslands, freshwater and marine.

The series will explain the challenges nature faces today and what can be done to make the wild isles even wilder in the future.

Alastair Fothergill is exec producing, with Hilary Jeffkins acting series producer. Banijay Rights is handling distribution for the series.
