Wild Europe

Wild Europe is a BBC nature documentary series looking at the events which have shaped the natural history and wildlife of the European continent over the past three billion years.

The series consists of four episodes: the first episode "Genesis" tells of how Europe's stunning landscapes and wildlife were created; the second episode "Ice Ages" traces Europe's natural history of the Ice Ages; the third episode "Taming the Wild" explores the growing influence of people on the land; and the fourth episode "A New Millennium" features the changes that Europe's natural history has experienced over the past decades.
