Behind-the-scenes footage from one of Sir David Attenborough’s acclaimed nature documentaries will be shown as part of a Brighton Festival event.

Scenes from Attenborough’s BBC series Wild Isles will be shown as part of a Q&A session with one of the show’s producers.

It will provide an insight into what goes in to creating the documentary including never-before-seen footage from the 2023 series.

Alastair Fothergill, an executive producer on Wild Isles who hosts the evening, said: “Ever since I worked on the original Blue Planet, Planet Earth and Frozen Planet series, I always wanted to cover the British Isles and our natural history with a similarly ambitious and epic approach.

“I knew that nobody had ever had the opportunity before to really do justice to the spectacular scenery and rich and varied wildlife found at home.

“When making Wild Isles, my hope was to genuinely surprise audiences with the richness of our natural history and for them to recognise how fragile and precious it is.”

Wild Isles Live at the Brighton Dome on May 21 will feature a Q&A session with Alistair responding to questions from members of the audience.

The show is coming to the city as part of the Brighton Festival in May.
