BBC, Ben Fogle visit Scotland’s islands

Sacred Islands with Ben Fogle will begin production this spring

UK broadcasters BBC1 and BBC Scotland have commissioned a series about the Scottish islands with explorer Ben Fogle, while BBC2 has ordered a second season of Villages by the Sea.

Sacred Islands with Ben Fogle (4×60’) follows the broadcaster and adventurer as he explores each of Scotland’s islands, from the Western and Northern Isles to the Inner Hebrides.

The series will premiere on BBC Scotland first, followed by BBC1 in a daytime slot later this year. Tern Television is producing, with production slated to begin this spring.

Elsewhere, BBC2 has commissioned Objective Media Group’s Manchester-based label Purple Productions to produce season two of Villages by the Sea.

The 6×30’ second season will see archaeologist Ben Robinson explore six of England’s coastal villages, from Northumberland to Suffolk and Cornwall, going beyond the postcard images to discover deeper stories about the country’s past.
