Spy In The Wild

David Tennant is the narrator of a new John Downer Productions Spy series which will be broadcast in the UK early in 2017. The 5 part series is called Spy In The Wild and the first episode was broadcast on BBC One on Thursday 12th January at 8pm with a repeat the following Sunday afternoon.

The BBC press release describes Spy In The Wild as:
'In one of the most innovative natural history series ever presented, Spy In The Wild deploys over 30 ultra-realistic animatronic 'Spy Creatures' to go undercover in the animal world, filming their unique behaviour closer than ever before.'

Previously David Tennant has narrated the nature series Earthflight, Penguins: Spy In The Huddle, Dolphins: Spy In The Pod and Pets Wild At Heart for John Downer Productions which specialises in utilising 'spy-cams' which means cameras can get right into the centre of animals' habitats.

The BBC held a press screening for Spy In The Wild on Thursday 8th December in London.

Spy In The Wild will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday 20th March in the UK.

Its initial broadcast in the US was on Wednesday 1st February on PBS but David does not narrate the US broadcast. However his narration is on the US DVD release. The first two episodes will be released on Tuesday 28th February.
