Sir David Attenborough’s latest series, Wild Isles, has been trending on social media for many days. The series, which is a creation of BBC networks, marks the veteran narrator’s return after a short break. Wild Isles will track down Britain and Ireland’s stunning flora and fauna. The series has been created and filmed over three years.
Wild Isles is quite a special series since Sir David travels across the beautiful horizons of the UK for the first time in his home country. The series comprises five episodes. It is widely stated that the series had to air a sixth episode, but the makers were scared to offend the right wing. Hence the episode was scrapped as it contained some material that could have been deemed objectionable by the right-wing
The move was met with immediate backlash. But BBC has clarified that the series was meant to air only five episodes. It wasn’t supposed to be a six-episode series. Well, whatever the truth may be, right now, viewers should be brimming with joy as the beloved narrator is back with a brand new show.
Wild Isles Episode 1 – Our Precious Isles

Yet humans tend to be ignorant about these wonders of nature. In this busy life, we fail to appreciate the beauty and mystery which exists in the nature
The British Isles offers to spend views of nature and wildlife. The crew has tried to keep everything detailed and let viewers peep deeply into the world of flora and fauna. The whales are out to look for their prey, the eagles fly across the expansive mountain range of Scotland, and the deceptive flowers trap pollinating insects.
