Wild Carpathia

Wild Carpathia is a three-part travel documentary series presented by Charlie Ottley, exploring the scenic beauty and rich culture of the Romanian Carpathian mountains. Romania has a huge virtually-untouched area of mountains almost the size of Britain. It is the heavily-forested home to some of Europe's most exciting species, including alpine Chamois, and particularly large carnivores like Brown Bears, Wolves and the elusive Lynx. Much of the area is a time-capsule with an almost-medieval life-style.

Episode 3 - Wild Forever
