Britain’s Distant Lands celebrates the astounding biodiversity, landscapes and histories of the UK Overseas Territories.

Britain’s Distant Lands showcases and celebrates the astounding diversity of animals, plants, landscapes, cultures and history of the UK Overseas Territories. The sixteen UK Overseas Territories are scattered across all seven seas, from the Equator to the South Pole. They harbour lush tropical rainforest, pristine coral reefs and Antarctic tundra, as well as some of the world’s largest penguin, albatross and sea turtle populations. More than one thousand unique plant and animal species call the UK Overseas Territories home, as do 270,000 British subjects united by a proud cultural heritage and many unique stories.

This unique DVD boasts a series of mini-documentaries dedicated to each UK Overseas Territory. Each film explores the rich natural history of the territory in question, and takes the viewer on a journey to these extraordinary places! The contents of the DVD include:
