Episode 4 of 4

Duration: 1 hour

In the final programme of the landmark series, narrated by Ewan McGregor, we meet the people of the Hebrides and discover how they're learning to live side-by-side with their wild neighbours.

Ferryman Donnie MacDonald from Skye has discovered that business can prosper if your passengers can be treated to some on-board entertainment in the form of white tailed eagles hunting alongside the boat.

We also meet Andrew Abrahams, who's attempting to turn the Island of Colonsay into a nature reserve for bees, Alice Starmore - an artist inspired by the peatlands of Lewis and Innes Henderson, the Coll fisherman who regularly has to steer his boat through a 100-strong group of basking sharks!
