This years series sees Pat Spillane rambling the remote woodlands of Romania in search of the Brown bear, Des Cahill caving in Cork and camping in Kenya to find the Spotted Hyena, Lucy Kennedy setting sail to capture a shot of one of the world's rarest whales, Brian Kennedy travelling the fjords of Norway to photograph the majestic White-Tailed eagle and Mary McEvoy leaving the stage on the trail of the elusive and aggressive Wild Boar. The winner heads to South Africa to swim with Great White Sharks.
