David Attenborough and 'Wild Isles'
The huge popular series 'Wild Isles' is thought to consist of 6 parts, while only 5 parts are being shown to the public - according to the Guardian. The Guardian writes about the 6th episode: 'The BBC will not broadcast Attenborough episode over fear of 'rightwing backlash'. Click link below to find out more.
In this piece by the Guardian it also informs us of the BBC's side of the story: Alastair Fothergill, the director of Silverback Films and the executive producer of Wild Isles, added: “The BBC commissioned a five-part Wild Isles series from us at Silverback Films back in 2017. The RSPB and WWF joined us as co-production partners in 2018.
It was not until the end of 2021 that the two charities commissioned Silverback Films to make a film for them that celebrates the extraordinary work of people fighting to restore nature in Britain and Ireland. The BBC acquired this film for iPlayer at the start of this year.”
David Attenborough is close to many people's heart, as his work - or fight - for looking after the nature around us, is more important then ever.
Just by watching the series, it makes you more aware of the beauty of nature near to us. From 'Wild Isles' to our own backyard - lets take care of the wildlife around us.
