Ewan McGregor to Narrate BBC Show About the Highlands #Outlander

Ewan McGregorEwan McGregor is narrating a new film that his him back to his roots. A new show from BBC Scotland, Highlands – Scotland’s Wild Heart, will follow the changing of the seasons in the Scottish Highlands.

The program will show, “How the animals and people of this stunning part of the world manage to turn adversity to their advantage,” according to BBC Scotland.

McGregor completed the voice narration in Los Angeles.

“I just finished recording of the narration for Highlands – Scotland’s Wild Heart. It’s incredibly beautiful and made me incredibly homesick,” McGregor said on Twitter.

Filming locations for the series ranged across the Highlands, taking in the splendour of the Cairngorms, dramatic northern seascapes, the ancient Caledonian pine forests, the vast Flow Country, the granite cliffs of Handa Island and the mysterious depths of Loch Ness.

Filming challenges included a night when 15,000 lightning strikes hit across Scotland, as well as one of the autumn’s biggest storms with gale force winds during filming of seal pupping.

McGregor first found fame from his role about a Scottish heroin addict in Trainspotting, for which he will shoot the sequel later this year.

“I’ve always loved the Highlands and had many great family holidays in summer, camping, and in winter, skiing,” McGregor’s mother, Carol, said. “It will be lovely to hear Ewan narrating this new series.”

“Viewers will be treated to a beautiful portrait of life, in the Highlands, for the animals and people that live there,” Craig Hunter, the commissioning editor for the BBC, said. “Some of the animal behaviour captured for this series has never been filmed before.”
