Product Description

Product Description

Alan Titchmarsh makes an epic journey through eight natural habitats of Britain to explore the islands’ amazing diversity of wildlife.

Alan Titchmarsh turns wildlife detective, as he takes us on a journey of discovery through eight different British natural habitats surveying their unique flora and fauna and piecing together the jigsaw that makes up our homeland.

Spanning the length and breadth of the British Isles – from East Anglia to Snowdon, and from Jersey to Shetland, the series focuses on eight distinct habitats – Island, Farmland, Urban, Freshwater, Coastal, Woodland, Wilderness and Secret Britain – featuring such amazing scenes as a bloody battle between two-tonne grey seals; seven million starlings filling a Somerset sky and the extraordinary acrobatics of leaping bottlenose dolphins.

In an inspirational, visually stunning and definitive guide to British wildlife, familiar creatures are shown in a new light and superb footage captures rare behaviour and animals often for the first time, including boxing hares, killer whales hunting seals off Shetland, the underwater courtship of the pike; the hunting strategy of the Minke Whale and otters swimming right in the centre of Newcastle.

With so much stunning footage of both scenery and wildlife, this constantly surprising series represents an amazing celebration of the uniqueness of British nature.

Presented by Alan Titchmarsh. Executive Producer: Vyv Simson. Series Producer: Stephen Moss. Produced by: Chris Cole (Island Britain); Simon Bell (Freshwater Britain); Stephen Moss, Susie Painter (Urban Britain, Secret Britain); Simon Bell (Farmland Britain); Chris Cole, Sally Cryer (Coastal Britain); Bridget Appleby, Michael Bright (Woodland Britain, Wilderness Britain).

A BBC TV Production in association with the Open University.

Alan Titchmarsh is the perfect companion on a tour throughout the U.K. looking at every aspect of wildlife and countryside blending in both perfectly. Apart from the series being beautifully filmed and hosted by Alan we found the documentary packed with interesting information. We learned lots of things such as 'did you know it was the Normans in 1066 who brought the pheasants to Britain altering the English landscape forever'? Anyone with an interest in our countryside and wildlife will thoroughly enjoy this series.

Nature of Britain is just beautiful.Wonderfully filmed.I just love the way each program has been arranged into different habitats,forests,freshwater,Island Britain etc.It allows you to be totally immersed in each section.
Alan Titchmarsh has really found his forte with this one.His commentry is funny,his enthusiasm is infectious and I was surprised to find it very informative.
If you like to see British wildlife as opposed to the Serengetti, you will love this.
Someone would love this as a gift.

I was a admirer of Alan Titchmarsh when he was in Ground Force on BBC America. I missed him when he left and later read of the series he was "presenting" on the nature and history of Britain. Until recently, I was unable to obtain this DVD set and could not have played it had I been able to find it. I didn't have a region 2 DVD player. The price of an all regions DVD player finally reached a price that I could afford. I bought one and found this delightful program on Amazon UK. BBC won't sell it overseas.
Mr. Titchmarsh is wonderful. He obviously loves nature and certainly the nature of Britain.The photography is top notch and the narration is witty, informative and uniquely Alan Titchmarsh. He conveys his love of nature in a way that makes this Anglophile wish I could visit the country of my heart. Thank you so much for making this available.

At first glance this looked like it was going to be one of the BCC's treasures, but it turned out to be lots of pretty pictures and not much substance.
Titchmarsh is an enthusiastic and well informed presenter, who obviously loves the countryside of Britain. The photography in the series is stunning, and the images of the wildlife and plants are beautifully presented.

However... there really isn't very much here which is new. It's also stitched together in a disconcerting jumble; in theory following themes but in practice it feels like lots of 8-minute segments just bolted together to fill the time.
So the series is entertaining and interesting, but it's not gasp-out-loud stuff which thrills or educates the watcher. Stick to Planet Earth for sweeping beauty and series like Coast or Nicholas Crane's walking tours for more depth and understanding.
One to rent rather than buy.

What a brilliant series. Congratulations to all those who were involved in its making and development. You can see the many hours of filming that must have gone in to getting some of the most incredible nature shots around. Alan Titchmarsh's natural love for his country abounds. His natural flare and heartfelt commentary is something worth watching and listening to. The filming is out of this world with some of the most amazing time lapse shots, slow motion and up close filming we have ever enjoyed just waiting for all to discover and enjoy. We live on the other side of the world but have just visited Britain. We are now sorry we didn't get to see some of the beautiful places Alan takes you to in the series. This is a series every Briton should see. Feel proud about it, it's simply a great production and will be watched many times.

As you would expect from the team behind this series, the filming and editing is of the highest order and the subject matter interesting and , at times, surprising. However, I cannot agree with many of the reviews on here. Alan Titchmarsh is annoying as a natural history presenter. His chummy demeanour lacks authority and the lame script is cringeworthy. There is far too much Alan on show: Alan on a boat; Alan up a hill; Alan underwater. It left me feeling this otherwise excellent series was more of a vanity project than a serious natural history documentary.

I discovered about this fantastic series on holiday, four years ago: not living in Britain I did not know Alan Titchmarsh for his gardening programs, I saw the book "The Nature of Britain", I found the pictures wonderful and when I looked it up on Amazon I discovered there was a tv program and ordered it. It has several remarkable qualities: that the different episodes are about different ecosystems (Freshwater, the coast, but also, the areas that people leave after having exploited them...)which are explored in their various aspects: animal life, vegetation, man's presence. That the images are absolutely stunning, but never just aimed at the "wow effect". That every episode is drenched in love for the British countryside and wildlife, without becoming sugary, there is actually a little humorous touch here and there. As a teacher of English in Italy, I will add that Mr Tichmarsh pronunciation and relaxed style of utterance makes him very accessible to students of English. I have just purchased it again because I lent the box set I had originally bought to someone I can't recall and who must have liked it, because I never got it back.
