Four of Britain’s well-loved celebrities are leaving their daily routines behind to spend time with acclaimed wildlife cameraman and presenter Hamza Yassin in Scottish Wild Escapes (w/t), a brand-new 4-part series from Hello Halo exploring the beauty that Scottish wildlife has to offer. Actor Martin Clunes, politician Baroness Warsi, actor and children’s author Ben Miller and the Rev Richard Coles will each spend a a few days with Hamza, in order to reconnect with nature and take in the breath-taking natural landscape of Western, Eastern and the Highlands of Scotland.
This feel-good nature series will capture the breath-taking scenery and local wildlife Scotland has to offer, which the famous faces featured in each episode will encounter alongside Hamza. Throughout their stay, his guests escape the pressures of their daily life and with nature as their tonic, learn something about themselves while rediscovering their appreciation for the outdoors.
They will be spending time in the wilderness, cooking in the great outdoors, stargazing and spotting British wildlife such as otters, deer, sea eagles, osprey and red squirrels. Each of Hamza’s guests will benefit from his effusive passion and knowledge of the local wildlife and natural history, immersing them and the viewer in the vast natural beauty of Scotland.
