The official book of the BBC One Series
Britain is a place of remarkable natural beauty and amazingly rich wildlife: few other places boast such immense diversity in such a small area. Our humble island has over 10,000 miles of coastline and is home to iconic wildlife and unique spectacles of migration that see animals from all corners of the globe descend upon our shores. Here, life is governed by the seasons as each month brings extraordinary transformations to our land and its inhabitants, from the biggest native stag to the tiniest migrant butterfly.
This lavish companion to the new BBC One series celebrates the vibrancy of the changing year through stunning photography and cutting-edge satellite images, revealing the unmissable drama and beauty to be witnessed on our very own doorstep. Acclaimed natural history writer Stephen Moss takes us through the cycle of the seasons and shares behind-the-scenes stories from the BBC Natural History team as they filmed the series.
