Nat Geo explores Wild Great Britain


Broadcaster secures global pay-TV deal for Plimsoll’s C5 series
National Geographic Channel has secured a global deal for a Channel 5 wildlife series.
Wild Great Britain will run on Nat Geo channels around the world, following a global pay-
TV licensing deal with Magnify Media, the UK distributor in which series producer Plimsoll
Productions owns a stake.
Nat Geo will create an international 4 x 60-minute version of the Hugh Bonneville-narrated
blue-chip series, which was original produced for Channel 5 as an eight-hour package. The
deal excludes the UK and the US.

Filmed over a year, Wild Great Britain follows wildlife around Britain, including the Cornish
coast and the Shetland Islands. Military-grade low-light cameras allowed producers to
capture nocturnal behaviour of various animal species.
Magnify managing director Andrea Jackson said it was “difficult to think of a show that
better reflects Nat Geo’s philosophy”.
Nat Geo director of global acquisitions Ben Noot brokered the agreement with Magnify’s
Chris Bartlett, the former DRG, Fremantle and BBC sales exec.
