An Unexpected Wilderness
Away from the tame landscape of suburban Essex, with its car parks and roads, Natural World rediscovers the rich, elemental and little appreciated wildernesses of this English county. An Unexpected Wilderness reveals the misconceptions that exist about rural England, bringing reassuring and surprising news about the state of the landscapes and their inhabitants. Most of all, this film encourages the protection of the remaining wild places, to show how man and nature can comfortably co-exist and for us all to experience the ‘wilderness’ while it is still possible.

Welcome to BBC EARTH! The world is an amazing place full of stories, beauty and natural wonder. Here you’ll find 50 years worth of astounding, entertaining, thought-provoking and educational natural history content. Dramatic, rare, and exclusive, nature doesn’t get more exciting than this.

    Are all these shots of a wild bird? The bird in the extreme closeups seems to be intensely focused on something straight ahead of it – very characteristic of a trained individual flying to its owner.

    How does anyone contribute, deliberately or through default, to putting this species at risk?

    Just the act of watching it fly. How you can visibly see its body move upward as it slowly flaps its wings is hypnotic.

    So, does the narrator write his little poetry down before hand or what?
