Hebrides : Islands on the Edge

Recently BBC Scotland screened an incredible 4 Part Wildlife Series that included my favourite part of Scotland , The Isle of Islay . Now it is to get a Network Broadcast on BBC Two and BBC Two HD  from Thursday 11th July at 9pm . Parts 1-3 work there way up from the Inner Hebrides to the Outers covering a full year , Part 4 concentrates on the people who live and work amongst the wildlife . The Photography is outstanding throughout with some breath taking footage (Watch out for the White Tailed Eagles !) .

Over the original screenings it was great to be able to exchange views on twitter with the people involved , Nigel Pope – the Exec Producer (@nigpope) , The Production Company Mara Media (@mara_media) and one of the Film makers John Aitchison (@JohnAitchison1) . throughout the broadcast of the series they used the Hashtag #BBCHebrides .

If you are a fan of Islay and the Hebrides this is a must watch Programme ! We’re looking forward to watching it again as it will lead nicely up to our Summer visit to Islay and our treks and wildlife watching . If you can’t wait there are clips available on the BBC website at //www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p014g3q2/clips and theres a whole section on the BBC site about it at Hebrides Islands on the Edge Page .

So just to remind you BBC Two / BBC Two HD 9pm from Thursday 11th July !
