Wild Africa

Show Summary

Wild Africa explores the natural history of the African continent. It is co-produced by BBC Natural History Unit and the Discovery channel and is part of the Natural History Unit's "Continents" strands. The documentary series began airing in November 2001. This nature documentary series was produced by Patrick Morris and narrated by Fergal Kaene. Using aerial photography and wildlife footage, each episode concentrates on a different environment. Episodes covered areas such as mountains, savannahs, deserts, coasts, jungles, and lakes and rivers. The series took 18 months to photograph on 53 filming trips in 22 countries. BBC used their well-known standards such as high production values, strong visuals, and a dedicated musical score to create an award-winning documentary series. In 2001, the series was nominated for photography at the BAFTA awards; in 2003, it took home awards for Best Limited Series and Best Cinematography at the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival. This was, in part, due to the experienced camera team of Peter Scoones, Gavin Thurston, Owen Newman, Martyn Colbeck, and Simon King.moreless
