Wild Italy: Series 1
Italy is not without reason one of the worlds most popular holiday destinations. Yet its fascinating wildlife remains largely unknown: wolves and brown bears in the forests of Northern Italy, flamingos in the Po delta and dolphins off the coast of Sicily. Stunning time-lapse and slow-motion footage show the country’s flora and fauna in a completely new light and landscapes unfold impressively in majestic aerial photography. This two-part documentary sets itself apart from others of its kind, with spectacular pictures capturing the unique light and atmosphere of Italy.
Part 1: From the Alps to Tuscany
From the snow-covered Dolomites to the blue of the Mediterranean; the landscape of Italy is already a favourite for many people. Away from the premium travel destinations, however, rare species such as the Apennine chamois, greater flamingos and basking sharks can be found in natural settings.
Part 2: From Sardinia to Abruzzo
For many people Sardinia is THE Mediterranean dream island: clich�-like picturesque coastlines are a reality here. The breathtaking underwater world is concealed beneath the crystal-clear water surrounding the island. Then on to Abruzzo, the same latitude as Rome, the wild heart of southern Italy.
