Incredible footage makes this a must-watch series about British wildlife.

This first episode introduces the animals who live in mountainous areas with a bird’s-eye view of the Cairngorms in Scotland from a camera fixed to a golden eagle.

And as the female goes in search of food in sub-zero temperatures, we get a close-up of this iconic bird in full hunt mode, and run with its prey, a hare, as it tries to escape across the snowy terrain – it doesn’t end well for the leggy mammal.

Meanwhile, in the lower Highlands, the monarch of the glen is ready to challenge rival stags who are after his harem – and it could be a fight to the death.

Hugh Bonneville’s narration makes this a very pleasant walk on the wild side.
