About this product

This is the first ever DVD to take an in depth look at the mammals of Britain. Film makers Steve Evans of Isabelline Films and Paul Wetton of Wildlife-Films.com are both fascinated by the wildlife we have here in Britain and they set about capturing its true beauty in broadcast quality film, creating stunning sequences of Britain's amazing mammals.

This triple-disc set contains four hours of stunning footage and features 78 species of mammal found on the British Isles and in its coastal waters. All 18 species of Bat, 11 species of Cetacean and all of the terrestrial mammals found here have been filmed. The DVD menu allows the viewer to navigate to a species of interest or sit back and watch the discs in their entirety. Each species profile combines a short slideshow of a distribution map and several photos of droppings and footprints that will be of use in identification with several minutes of footage with informative narration focusing on morphological and behavioural characteristics. As such, the guide provides the viewer with the tools to identify each individual species with additional information on habitat, distribution and the best time of year to find them. The DVD is thus a perfect visual complement to the Mammals of the British Isles Handbook.

The bonus disc contains over an hour of extra footage, including eight special featurettes, unseen clips and original promotional trailers.

The wildlife we have here in Britain is truly amazing and the variety will certainly inspire you to venture into the countryside or out to sea in search of these superb animals yourself.

Steve Evans has a life-long passion for British Nature and in particular birds. His other passion in life is producing short films. Since 2004, Steve has managed to combine the two and has created over ten DVDs about the Rare & Scarce birds seen in Britain. He has also ventured outside of the UK to produce five DVD guides for Birdwatching in Portugal, Sardinia, Slovenia, the Canary Islands and Cape May in the USA. In 2013 Steve was keen to broaden his knowledge of British Wildlife and teamed up with fellow wildlife cameraman, Paul Wetton to produce the first ever DVD guide to British mammals.

Paul Wetton loves the peace and quiet of secluded outdoor places, has a great interest in all aspects of wildlife and has spent many years watching, photographing and more recently filming many natural history subjects. Paul has produced films covering a multitude of British and European species. One such film being the acclaimed Butterfly Year. Paul jumped at the opportunity to spend time filming the mammals of Britain with Steve and increase his knowledge on this interesting subject.
