Britain Goes Wild with Bill Oddie

Show Summary

Britain Goes Wild with Bill Oddie is a live TV show produced for BBC in 2003. The show has run for about a year before its last episode was released on June 17, 2004. Each one-hour episode features Bill Oddie, Kate Humble and Simon King following the natural movements of animals in the English countryside. Wildlife is documented by hidden cameras planted on animals' nest boxes throughout the show. To note, birds are mostly the focus of the fauna as Bill Oddie is known for his expertise on ornithology and bird watching. The show has garnered around 3.4 million viewers on its first evening of broadcast, making it an instrumental medium for promoting the preservation of wildlife in the United Kingdom. Other aspects being covered by the documentary-like show include how animals struggle against their decreasing populations and the usurpation of their natural habitats. Oddie's natural inclination to comedy also makes the show more appealing to its audiences.
