Wildest Tribes coming to BBC Two
Wildest Tribes, produced by the BBC, is currently gearing up to begin filming in June for BBC Two. The three-part nature series will follow naturalist and wildlife cameraman Gordon Buchanan as he works to ingratiate himself to remote tribes.
Buchanan's role is to gain valuable insight into the way the tribe track and hunt prey in their day-to-day lives. Further details listed on Production Intelligence include the executive producer, production manager, series producer and further information on shoot dates.
BBC Two has commissioned a raft of new nature documentaries as of late including Atlantic - Earth's Wildest Ocean, Japan: Earth's Enchanted Islands and Sue Perkins-led Himalaya. More information on these projects can also be found on Production Intelligence. For an in-depth demo, click here.
