Hebrides: Islands on the Edge (2013)

BBC Series / UK / Documentary / Colour / 60m

The latest high profile natural history series from the BBC brings the beauty and exotic Hebrides into the nation's homes.

Focusing on Scottish animals, in a Scottish landscape, Hebrides: Islands On The Edge is a refreshing attempt to do for the west coast what Attenborough has done for the rest of the world.

It’s from a stable of experienced wildlife filmmakers led by Nigel Pope, who created Springwatch and Big Cat Diary. The images they’ve captured are magnificent: the churning waters of Corryvreckan, cod hunting in the wrecks underwater off Islay, every feather on an eagle swooping on its prey.

And it’s what TV producers call “story-led” - that is, isolating moments of drama for individual creatures with manipulative narration from Ewen McGregor which constantly tells us that small things are in deadly danger.
