Scotland’s own Ewan McGregor has announced that he will narrate a new nature series focused on the natural beauty of the country.
Titled “Wild Scotland,” McGregor will narrate a four-part series focused on the Hebrides – a diverse archipelago off the west coast of mainland Scotland.
“I’ve spent the last two days narrating a doc about the Hebrides,” he recently tweeted. “It’s one of the most beautiful films I’ve ever seen. Majestic. Should be seen in Scotland in May.”
He then added the below screenshot:
According to sources, some of the same acclaimed filmmakers that shot groundbreaking nature epics like “Frozen Planet” and “Big Cat Diary” are behind this latest project; a reported three years in the making.
“Scottish viewers will just not have seen Scottish scenery and wildlife reflected in such cinematic majesty before as we have in Hebrides – Islands on the Edge,” said Neil McDonald, executive producer of the Wild Scotland season, in a statement. “It is very much a landmark series for BBC Scotland in conjunction with independent TV company Maramedia, providing unprecedented images of the greatness and minutiae of the islands’ wildlife.”
According to The Scotsman, Sir David Attenborough will also provide narration for a separate four-part series focused on how Scotland’s landscapes have inspired some of the world’s leading cameramen.
Look for “Wild Scotland” to premiere in May on the BBC.
