Win­ter­watch goes wild and heads for the High­lands

The Sunday Telegraph - - News - By Vic­to­ria Ward

VIEW­ERS of Win­ter­watch will be trans­ported di­rectly into the habi­tats of one of the wildest places in the UK, when the BBC team re­lo­cates to the Cairn­gorms.

In a con­trast to the rolling coun­try­side of the Cotswolds, where the show was based this year, pro­duc­ers are hop­ing to cap­ture the res­i­dents of Scot­land’s moun­tains, forests, rivers and lochs.

Chris Pack­ham, Michaela Stra­chan and Gil­lian Burke, the pre­sen­ters, will host the next se­ries of the show in the depths of win­ter in one of the tough­est places in the coun­try for an­i­mals.

Rose­mary Edwards, the ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer, told The Sun­day Tele­graph: “A lot of peo­ple don’t know how wild parts of Scot­land are, and to me this is one of the wildest places you can visit in the UK. It’s so re­mote, it’s in the moun­tain­ous re­gion, sur­rounded by the largest amount of pine forests dat­ing back al­most to the Ice Age. The land­scape is epic.”

The team will start plan­ning meet­ings to­mor­row and will be­gin film­ing in late De­cem­ber.
