This evening I watched ITV's latest prime-time attempt to compete with the might of BBC nature programming. I missed Wild Britain with Ray Mears last week, but caught the second episode today. I can't say I'm particularly thrilled to have missed half of The Gadget Show in order to do so, as it was frankly a bit weak and wishy washy. I love Ray's work as a rule, but I think the game has moved on and this is struggling to compete with the incredible photography of recent BBC epics (Life…) or fast-paced bonhomie of Spring/Autumnwatch. Harmless, but rather middle of the road, where I suppose it finds an occupiable niche.
