Introduced by David Attenborough
In the far north of Britain, on the stormwashed islands of Shetland, lives a rare and beautiful animal, which most of us will never see - the otter.
Here, for the first time, is an opportunity to watch, through the eye of the camera, the day to day activities of a family of totally wild otters - a courting pair at play, fluffy young cubs venturing into the water for the first time, and finally the well-grown young otters learning to hunt and fend for themselves.

Chris Serle and Paul Heiney take it in turns to plunge in at the deep end and learn the hard way about a completely new world.
Chris Serle is just an average amateur photographer. Will he convince a national newspaper that he has what it takes to be sent on a major picture assignment?
For six weeks, Chris works alongside some of the top photographers in Fleet Street learning to capture the most dramatic moment of a news story or the sex appeal of a page three girl. He tries to follow the action of a rugby international and joins a scrum of rival photographers competing for a picture of Sarah Ferguson. 'You've got to be quicker, sharper, faster than all the people around you' warns former newspaper editor Derek Jameson as Chris prepares to do battle with 50 hardened professionals on a solo royal assignment for the Daily Mirror.
