Ireland 'must be seen' says David Attenborough ahead of new documentary series

Ireland is to feature in a new documentary series hosted by David Attenborough.

The new five-episode BBC series will explore the "extraordinary animal dramas and wildlife spectacles" across Great Britain and Ireland.

Filmed over a time frame of three years, the docuseries will showcase the challenges and triumphs the nature of the British Isles faces every day.

The docuseries, titled Wild Isles, will showcase a range of species and nature across the very depths of the British Isles, but while its attention is on Ireland, one animal will be under the spotlight.

According to the Irish Examiner, viewers will see red deer stags when the show is focusing on our Island, named to be "Ireland’s wildest corners".

Elsewhere in the British Isles, viewers will also encounter gulls stealing fish from puffins off Northumberland, and wild horses battling for access to females in Cambridgeshire.

Speaking ahead of the part series, Attenborough, who is 96 years old says “there are extraordinary animal dramas and wildlife spectacles to match anything I have seen on my global travels.”
