Series overview

This brand new series for ITV features natural world expert Ray Mears on a journey of discovery among the landscapes and wildlife of China.

Starting in the capital Beijing, and taking in wonders of the world like the Great Wall of China, Ray walks with elephants in the country's tropical rainforest, joins rangers rewilding the nation's giant pandas, searches for the elusive snow leopard, explores one of its most famous landscapes in Karst country, comes face to face with a brown bear, and treks in the foothills of the Himalayas alongside herbal medicine experts, uncovering secrets of its plants.

Across the seven episodes, filmed prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, the bushcraft specialist travels across the vast country, aiming to provide a vivid insight into the diverse flora and fauna populating some of the wildest places on earth.

This is a Tin Can Island production for ITV
